Apple has been hit with a lawsuit in Thailand, according to a report out of the country.
The Bangkok Post on Thursday reported that broadcaster Cable Thai Holding (CTH) has filed a lawsuit against Apple for allowing an application in its App Store that let people watch English Premier League (EPL) soccer on their mobile devices. The company is asking for $3 million in damages.
According to the Post, CTH owns the rights to EPL. At some point, an app known as Sport Channel was approved by Apple for entry into its App Store in Thailand. The application, which sets customers back $30, allows them to watch soccer games from an iOS device.
CTH was quick to point out that Apple doesn't actually own the developer behind Sport Channel, but is being charged by allowing the sale of the app in its marketplace.
CNET has contacted Apple for comment on the lawsuit. We will update this story when we have more information.
