Higher online prices across EU borders 'could be illegal'

technology

Margrethe Vestager, the European Commissioner for Competition, has announced the launch of an inquiry into Europe's e-commerce marketplace. Her investigation will examine why prices can vary so much between country-specific websites run by companies including Amazon and Apple, and will cover digital content such as films, music and games, as well as physical goods. Ms Vestager said she wanted to create a truly single market for online goods. Her investigation, which may be completed by next summer, will also cover geoblocking software which erects artificial digital barriers between countries.
