Apple Hit With Lawsuit From App Store Developer Over Copycat Apps

App developer Kosta Eleftheriou, who highlighted the problem of scam and copycat apps on the App Store last month, is now suing Apple for a variety of accusations, including negligence and anticompetitive conduct (via The Verge). Eleftheriou’s complaint, filed against Apple in Santa Clara County, California, accuses the company of exploiting its control over iOS apps “to make billions of dollars in profits at the expense of small application developers and consumers.” Eleftheriou explains that his keyboard app for the Apple Watch, “FlickType,” was targeted by poorly-functioning competing software that eroded his sales and App Store rankings through false advertising and the purchase of fake reviews.
