The Italian Antitrust Authority has sanctioned Apple and Amazon.com for a total of 200 million euros at the end of the investigation for the restrictions on access to the Amazon.it marketplace by legitimate resellers of Apple-branded products. and “genuine” Beats. The investigation, explains the note, made it possible to ascertain that certain contractual clauses of an agreement signed on October 31, 2018 – which prohibited official and unofficial retailers of Apple and Beats products from using Amazon.it, allowing the sale of Apple products and Beats in this marketplace only to Amazon and to certain individuals chosen individually and in a discriminatory way – they violate art. 101 of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union.

In detail, the Authority imposed a fine of 68.7 million on the companies of the Amazon group and a penalty of 134.5 million on the companies of the Apple group and finally ordered these companies to end the restrictions, allowing access ad Amazon.it to resellers of “genuine” Apple and Beats products in a non-discriminatory manner.
