Apple's ordeal continues!  – J.S. Emering

Apple denies violating a US court order in its lawsuit against Epic Games.

Apple asked the US court to dismiss the lawsuit filed by Epic Games regarding the infringement of the game Fortnite!

Apple laid out the arguments in a lawsuit before U.S. District Judge Yvonne Gonzalez Rogers of Oakland, who in 2020 filed a lawsuit against Epic Games, accusing Apple of violating antitrust law by strictly controlling how consumers download gaming apps and pay for in-app transactions. .

Apple's filing criticized Epic Games' attempt to make “Apple's tools and technologies freely available to developers.”

Epic Games wanted the court to approve a business model that would help Epic Games' profitability through Apple's business model.

Epic Games had no comment, and Apple did not immediately respond to requests for comment on the dispute, which is part of a long battle between the two companies.

Epic lost its previous large lawsuit against Apple. In 2021, Judge Rogers ordered Apple to give developers more freedom to allow users to choose between alternative payment methods within the app.

In January, the US Supreme Court refused to hear Apple's appeal against the ban. In Hungary, the court rejected Apple's appeal.


Epic Games said in a lawsuit last month that Cupertino, California-based Apple had “flagrantly violated” the court order. They point out that Apple charges developers a 27% fee after each purchase, which, according to the video game manufacturer, makes links to alternative payment options “commercially unviable.” – So presumably Epic Games doesn't like that they think the 27% commission is too much for apps purchased through Apple. If they win the lawsuit, that amount could go into Epic Games' pocket.

According to Epic, Apple has blocked some apps from notifying users of other payment methods.

Third-party developers will bypass Apple Pay.

Meta, Microsoft, Elon Musk and Match Group echoed Epic's arguments last month, telling Judge Rogers that Apple was in “clear violation” of the court order. – In a similar case filed by Epic against Alphabet's Google (GOOGL:O), a judge in San Francisco is expected to issue a separate injunction this year affecting the Google Play Store.
