{Disarmed} Epic appeals sentence after being defeated in its trial against Apple

Epic appeals sentence after being defeated in its trial against Apple

It may not all be bad for Epic in the Apple judgment , but certainly if there was a winner in this legal battle, it was the Cupertino company .

For example, Epic failed to get Judge Yvonne Gonzalez Rogers to see Apple and its App Store as a monopoly. It is true that the company must now open the door to other payment methods for developers, but that is not enough for Epic , which has appealed that ruling.

Epic does not give up, but it has it complicated

The ruling actually requires Epic to pay $ 3.65 million to Apple for violating its App Store rules, in addition to 30% of what Epic has collected with its own payment gateway since November 2020.

The hardest defeat was the one affecting the vision of monopoly that Epic's lawyers wanted to give Apple with its App Store. The objective was to ensure that the sentence required the possibility of opening the door to other application stores - as happens in Windows or Android, for example - but the sentence ruled out such an option.

In fact, only Apple is required to allow links to third-party payment systems, but that requirement may not be enough to solve the problem referred to by Epic and other companies such as Spotify: the App Store, controlled by Apple, will remain the only one. way to find and install software, although later it is possible to pay for it in other ways.

Epic's goals with this judicial process are not clearly stated in Epic's appeal , but it is likely that even Apple will also end up appealing the ruling. The legal battle will undoubtedly continue to have ramifications, but today Apple seems to have succeeded, at least in the United States. We will see what happens in Europe .
