BEIJING, Nov 3 (Reuters) - China’s JD.com Inc has filed a complaint with a Chinese anti-trust regulator concerning rival Alibaba Group Holding Ltd, the country’s No.2 e-commerce platform said on its official microblog on Tuesday.
The complaint concerns a State Administration for Industry and Commerce regulation which forbids e-commerce platforms from limiting or barring their merchants from participating in promotions on other platforms. The regulation came into effect on Oct. 1.
