Slightly OT Question

Sorry this a bit OT but couldn't think of anywhere else to ask...

I'm developing a self-voicing App for people with cognitive disabilities
under iOS - and got a quote today for the use of a third-party TTS SDK
[needed as the official Apple TTS API is private].

Normally their rate is 30% of the Net App price [after store fees & tax], so
bundling TTS costs end users a few Euro, but they have a clause which says
Apps used in an AAC/disability comms context pay must at least $149 per

......I wondered if this was legal, seems morally questionable at least.
