The ride-sharing service Gett has filed an antitrust lawsuit in Russia against competitor Yandex.Taxi, accusing the company of spying on other mobile apps installed on its customers’ phones.

Earlier this month, a Russian publicist claimed that the Yandex.Taxi app searches for competing ride-sharing service apps installed on users’ phones. If it finds one, Yandex.Taxi supposedly lowers its rates, to be more competitive.

Gett says it ordered an independent study that allegedly confirmed these allegations. Yandex, meanwhile, denies the charges.
