Apple Beats Deal Gets EU Commission Approval

BRUSSELS (Hypebot) – Apple's $3 billion deal to purchase Beats Electronics and Beats Music has received the approval of the European Union Commission. The trade regulators found that Apple and Beats are no dominate players in the headphone category in Europe, and what they sell is too varied to be considered closely competitive, according to TechCrunch.

U.S. approval is next, and considered likely.

Then Apple and Beats can turn to the new lawsuit against them filed by competitor Bose.
