Apple fined by Moscow Court for hosting “inaccurate” content.

A Moscow court fined Apple 400,000 rubles ($4,274) for failing to remove “inaccurate” content about Russia’s “special military operation” in Ukraine from apps and podcasts. This is the first such fine for Apple. The court cited content intended to involve minors in illegal activities to destabilize Russia’s political situation.

Apple did not respond to requests for comment, but had previously halted product sales in Russia following the country’s military action in Ukraine. It was requested that the court session be closed to prevent the disclosure of the trade secret.

Apple had paid a fine of 906 million rubles in a Russian antitrust case for alleged abuse of dominance in the mobile application market. Russia’s Federal Antimonopoly Service (FAS) claimed that Apple’s distribution of apps through iOS gave it a competitive advantage.

The same court fined Wikimedia Foundation, owner of Wikipedia, 3 million rubles for a similar crime. Wikimedia has been fined before and defends its well-stocked information according to Wikipedia standards.
