[THE INVESTOR] The Korea Fair Trade Commission is looking into Apple on suspicion of imposing part of advertising costs on local mobile carriers.

According to industry sources, the FTC suspects that local carriers were made to cover part of the advertising costs for the US company’s new products.

Apple is also said to be suspected of making carriers cover a part of the costs arising from customer services. 

The FTC, however, declined to confirm the reports.
