Apple, Epic Games want to fight antitrust case without jury

Apple, Epic Games want to fight antitrust case without jury”

Speaking on the subject, Judge Rogers stated that the hearing of the parties in the case can not be started before July 2021, according to Cnet's report. "This is why Fortnite, for example, is available directly from Epic's store or from other app stores including Samsung's Galaxy App store", Google said. That's the security issue.

"There are a lot of people in the public who consider you guys heroes for what you guys did, but it's still not honest", she added.

Twelve companies, including Epic Games, Spotify, and Match Group, parent of Tinder, launched an advocacy group called the coalition for app fairness. Gonzales said, "I don't think individual judges have the be-all and end-all here". We have heard that there will be a decision in the coming days, so we'll keep you posted. As real people are being affected in this, the judge feels that real people should be the ones to make a decision on who is guilty and who is not.

Rogers in a hearing last month had restricted Apple from taking any action against Epic's developer account and had maintained that the ban on Fortnite will remain in place.

Facebook roundly criticised the tech firm for stifling new business after introducing features to allow businesses to sell digital services on its own platform. The PSN, Nintendo Shop, Xbox Marketplace - these things have existed for years without issues. Since walled gardens have been popular in the industry for decades, Epic Games might receive support from some, but others aren't as keen on a breach of the status quo. Sony has had a walled garden. "It's hard to ignore the economics of the industry, which is what you're asking me to do", Gonzalez Rogers said. Under such circumstances, Apple would likely have to forego a jury trial, which the company is apparently willing to do to get the ball rolling.

In its defense, Epic admitted that it breached its contract with Apple, but justified that it was for the objective of non-compliance with Apple's non-competitive policies and forcing a legal battle thereafter. That's what we now know about the judge's ruling on the Epic and Apple lawsuit. However, it is also relevant for the likes of Airbnb, Facebook, and class booking app ClassPass, which have expanded into online workout classes and "experiences" throughout lockdown to find new streams of revenue in the wake of the collapse of travel as we know it.

Where do you stand so far though?
