European Commission to assess Apple’s Shazam acquisition
Posted on: 7 février 2018, by : Stuart Dredge

Apple announced plans to acquire music-recognition firm Shazam in December 2017, but European regulators may yet throw a spoke in the works of the deal.
“The European Commission has accepted a request from Austria, France, Iceland, Italy, Norway, Spain and Sweden to assess under the EU Merger Regulation the proposed acquisition of Shazam by Apple,” announced the EC yesterday.
“The Commission considers the transaction may threaten to adversely affect competition in the EEA.” The EEA being the European Economic Area – the EU plus Iceland, Liechtenstein, and Norway, if you’re wondering.
