German anti-trust chief watching Apple and Epic feud “closely”

German’s anti-trust chief is keeping a close eye on the Apple vs. Epic Games feud, although even with it showing interest, it’s unable to impose fine or even regulations, as Reuters reports:

“This has most certainly attracted our interest,” said Andreas Mundt, head of the Federal Cartel Office. “We are at the beginning, but we are looking at this very closely.”

Although the Bonn-based authority does have the power to impose fines, it typically undertakes administrative probes into big technology firms to establish whether they are abusing their market dominance and then seeks a change in the way they work.

Mundt pointed to the fact that Apple and Google are the only two major operating systems in the world, saying they represent an “interesting habitat.”
