Apple's Purchase Of Shazam Given Green Light

Apple have been given the go ahead by the European Union to acquire the music discovery company Shazam. The purchase was announced in December 2017 but has been held up until now by an European Union antitrust investigation due to the popularity of Shazam and the amount of data they hold. European Union competition commissioner Margrethe Vestager stated that "acquisition by Apple would not reduce competition in the digital music streaming market".
