By John F. Heerdink, Jr.

Reportedly, Apple (AAPL) will face legal and regulatory challenges for its current App Store practices. A group consisting of Spotify Technology SA, Match Group Inc., and “Fortnite” creator Epic Games have joined a nonprofit group, based in Washington, D.C., and Brussels to impose regulatory charges against Apple. Other members part of the coalition includes smaller firms such as Basecamp, Blix, Blockchain.com, Deezer, and Tile, along with developers from Europe, the European Publishers Council, News Media Europe, and Protonmail.

Apple shares a 15% to 30% commission between apps that use its in-app payment system and lays down extensive rules for apps in its App Store, drawing criticism and formal legal complaints from some developers.

The Coalition for App Fairness is set to push legal changes that would force Apple to incorporate changes. Epic is reportedly suing Apple in a U.S. federal court in California over antitrust claims, and Spotify has also filed an antitrust complaint in the European Union.
