Apple Faces Antitrust Investigation From Brazil Watchdog

  • Brazil probe could take several years to be resolved
  • Regulators in US, EU, elsewhere have similar investigations

Brazil’s antitrust watchdog Cade has started an investigation into Apple Inc for alleged abuse of a dominant position. 

Cade opened the probe on Jan. 12 following a complaint filed by Latin America’s e-commerce and fintech giant MercadoLibre Inc, the agency said in a statement. The complaint adds to a series of antitrust cases around the world, including in the US, EU, UK, South Korea, Japan, India and Indonesia, Cade added.
