Apple and Fees

Two stories from MacRumor on the same day.

Apple’s App Store Subscription Policies Raise Antitrust Issues as Content Providers Fume

Apple Lobbying for International Tax Amnesty to Bring Home Profits

So Apple is requesting that the government lower taxes on foreign earnings for a year from 35% to 5%, while turning around and charging content providers 30% of subscription fees while they ask for 2.5%.

Why not both? I usually side with Apple, but in this case it seems they are just being greedy.
