Apple aren't exactly showing themselves to be the fairest of companies in the world. In addition to refusing to pay royalties over Apple Music's "free trial" period – despite having more cash reserves than any country in the world – Apple have also been found guilty of anti-competitive practices in Taiwan by the nation's Fair Trade Commission, and will have to pay T$20 million (around $647,124 USD), a court ruled yesterday.

Breaching Taiwanese law, Apple required its telecom partners to seek approval before setting price plans for the iPhone in advance of public release. The fine was previously levied against Apple, who countersued and lost the case.

"Apple limited telecoms from setting contract price for its 4, 4S, 5 and 5S models, which is against the law," Commission spokesman Chiu Yung-ho told Reuters. "When the phone is transferred to a third party telecom, the vendor loses its right to set prices."

In a twist of irony, many Taiwanese companies – including Hon Hai Precision Industry Co Ltd, Pegatron Corp and Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co Ltd – make components or provide assembly services for Apple products, with Apple-related exports making up a fair portion of the nation's economy.
