Google, which was recently sued by the Match Group, which owns the popular dating app tinder,has now launched a legal counterattack with very strong demands. The tech giant is accusing Match Group of acting in bad faith and breaching a contract; provoking a lawsuit regarding Google Play policy.
So, Google filed a lawsuit in response to a lawsuit initiated by the Match Group in May – the owner of popular dating applications Tinder and OurTime accused the owner of the marketplace of a monopolistic billing policy. In addition, as you know, Google and Apple are extremely negative about initiatives to carry out monetary transactions; bypassing their own payment systems. Google has partly changed its policy while preparing for retaliatory steps.
In a dispute over the Play Store, Google sues the Tinder developer
Google has sued Match Group Inc., accusing the dating-app service of bad faith dealings; and breach of contract in provoking a legal battle over Google Play policies.
On Monday, Google filed a lawsuit against Match Group, alleging that the company does not want to pay for using the marketplace; in which Google charges a 15% commission on the first million dollars a year from US developers; the commission usually increases after this amount of sales is reached.
According to Google, this puts the Match Group in a better position than other app developers who “respect their agreements and voluntarily compensate Google for the benefits they receive”.
Also, Google, in turn, is demanding monetary compensation from the Match Group; and is also asking the court to make a decision; to permanently deprive the owner of dating services of access to its app store.
