Anti-trust authority fines Amazon and Apple 200 mn euros

Case regards seller restrictions on Amazon.it marketplace

(ANSA) - ROME, NOV 23 - Italy's anti-trust authority said Tuesday that it has imposed fines totalling more than 200 million euros on Amazon and Apple.
    The fines were handed out over restrictions that sellers of authentic Apple and Beats brand produces faced in accessing the Amazon.it marketplace.
    Amazon was fined 68.7 million euros and Apple was fined 134.5 million.
    The authority said the restrictions should end so that these sellers could access Amazon.it without discrimination.
    In a statement, Amazon said it was in "profound disagreement" with the authority and would appeal against the penalty, describing it as "disproportionate and unjustified".
    It said the agreement it has with Apple enables its customers to find the latest Apple and Beats products with the best offers.
