Real world?

> Google and Apple have argued those fees are akin to rents paid for real-world retail premises because they reflect the cost of operating their digital stores.

Now maybe I'm just ignorant of modern commercial real-estate agreements, but do landlords really charge retailers a %age of the value of all products sold on their premises? And landlords also provide payment facilities for the retailer, and contractually bar the retailer from collecting payment through any other system or provider?

What a world we live in!
