The ROC Fair Trade Commission has fined Apple Asia for $665,000 for restrictive practices governing cell phone distribution contracts. 

Apple Asia was found guilty of breaching the Fair Trade Act by getting telecommunication suppliers to sell the iPhone at a set price, breaching Taiwan’s free trade laws.

Apple Asia also told carriers to alter service contract prices which was also in breach of the Fair Trade Act which allows Taiwan the freedom to sell at their own prices.

This is the first time Apple has been charged for such practices.
