The law firm Newman DuWors is looking to start an antitrust case against Facebook, alleging that Facebook’s implementation of Facebook Credits is a violation of anticompetitive laws. The case claims that Facebook blocked other merchants from processing transactions and in the process raised prices considerably. Of course, they fail to mention that a 30% transaction fee is normal these days, and is hardly a unique case of anticompetitive action. The case probably won’t go far.
