US survey shows 79% condemn Apple and Google’s monopolistic rules

The “Coalition for App Fairness”, which is led by Epic Games , has published two polls showing that the majority of American citizens consider that Apple and Google have a monopoly on their platforms .

As strong as bipartisanship is in the US, survey data shows that 79% of respondents support the “Open Market Act” . That is, a law that forces Apple and Google to allow third-party payment systems to be used in their stores.

Recent research conducted by OnMessage Public Strategies and Lake Research Partners found that voters, from both parties, support legislation to address the anti-competitive practices of app store owners.

Additionally, 68% of respondents believe so-called Big Techs have too much power , while 79% support lawmakers’ efforts to open up the ecosystem of these companies .

When asked how much power Apple wields, 59% said it was too much and 28% said it was “just the right amount”.

The data shows that the public perception is that Apple and Google have monopolistic control over what apps are allowed in their stores and even how consumers can download them.

The surveys were carried out with 1,600 people at the beginning of June.

Founded in 2020 by Epic Games, Spotify and other developers, the “Coalition for App Fairness” (CAF) is a lobby group created specifically to defend companies from App Store policy. The group has been pushing for Apple to allow third-party app stores, alternative payment systems and less restrictive terms.
