Re: Apple do not have Significant Market Power on mobile phones

The word "podcast" clearly indicates its origins. People may not be using iPods anymore, but iTunes still has a podcasts section, where podcasts register themselves so people can find them. There are other directories for podcasts except that 1. A lot of podcast apps use the iTunes directories to make it easy to search for podcasts (because people put their ones in) and 2. other directories rarely have a review system at all. However, apple doesn't use their "market dominance" in simply providing a list of a lot of podcasts to enforce things--podcast apps that are written only for android use the iTunes lists for their search system, nor do they prevent podcasts that don't list themselves there from working. It's just a database, and a really harmless one.
