Can't blame Microsoft for asking.
The Windows App Store has iTunes in its listing. Do Microsoft get a cut of every song Apple sells through iTunes? I doubt it.
Also, Apple Music on Android uses its own payment system, not Google Play's version of in app purchases.
Apple are quite happy to be the exception on other people's platforms.
I agree. Apple should tone down the virtue signaling about human rights, privacy and security. It makes them look very hypocritical at best.
At some point the cost of doing business in the EU with its parasitic taxation schemes, intrusive oversight, and blatant protectionism may inspire global players to simply take a pass on dealing with any of it at all.

This is the nature of an economy divided into Haves and Have Nots.

Podcasts are exploding recently, I remember being one of the only people to use them in my social circle and I though *I* WAS LATE to the game back in 2011. Nowadays everyone knows what they are. This is the perfect time for Apple to take them more seriously and add to the ecosystem stickiness with their massive library.
What a shame.
