Federal Court of Canada orders Apple to turn over documents in antitrust probe

Canada's Federal Court has ordered Apple to give documents to the Canadian Competition Bureau, which is looking into the possibility that Apple unfairly used its market position to increase iPhone sales. The Bureau thinks that agreements between carriers and Apple may have harmed competition by encouraging certain price controls on rival devices,.

According to Reuters:

In seeking the order, the Competition Bureau had said agreements Apple negotiated with wireless carriers may have cut into competition by encouraging the companies to maintain or boost the price of rival phones.

Details on the investigation emerged this week showing that the bureau was investigating whether Apple's agreements discouraged carriers from reducing the prices of competing phones, or encouraged them to raise those prices.
