So just to understand, Apple and Google can bilaterally agree to charge a 95/5 split instead of a 30/70 and it's legal?
Regardless of the split itself, agreeing to price fix is illegal in this context.
Nobody is agreeing to price fixed. Stop! Gees... several posts down we established 30% as the standard premium rate that most B2B services charge. It's not just Apple and Google. Valve, retail stores, and many others do it too. It's not price fixing if it is a standard practice across the industry.
I'm not saying the current market split is price fixing, I was answering his question that both companies agreeing to a certain split would be price fixing. Re-read both posts, you have misunderstood the context.
