New Law in South Korea Bans Apple From Requiring Developers to Use in-App Purchase System ➝

Sami Fathi, writing for MacRumors:

Under the now passed bill, Apple in South Korea will no longer be permitted to limit developers to only use its in-app purchasing system, which grants it a 15% to 30% commission for all purchases made.

I expect this change will come to other countries as well, it’s just a shame that regulations needed to force Apple’s hand. I would have preferred Apple to just do the right thing.
