CR Primer on the Open App Markets Act – Setting Fair Rules to Ensure a Competitive App Marketplace (S.2710 / H.R. 7030)

Description: Consumer Reports supports the Open App Markets Act (S.2710/H.R. 7030) which narrowly targets policy intervention at the app marketplace and proposes fair market rules that will benefit consumers. These targeted solutions strike the right balance between introducing more competition on smartphones and preserving Apple and Google’s own incentives to keep developing their mobile ecosystems. The Act also includes provisions to safeguard user security and privacy.
