Apple’s epic bug1 min read 12 Sep 2021, 11:54 PM IST
As Apple didn’t dominate ‘digital mobile gaming transactions’, with Android a big rival, the US court ruling rejected Epic’s contention of Apple’s monopoly abuse under federal law
Though its share price slipped more than 3% in response, Apple Inc. welcomed last week’s US court outcome on antitrust charges levelled by Epic Games. As Apple didn’t dominate “digital mobile gaming transactions", with Android a big rival, the ruling rejected Epic’s contention of Apple’s monopoly abuse under federal law. But, under California’s provisions, it held the iPhone-maker guilty of anti-competitive conduct that stifled consumer choice for not letting apps tell users how to pay via mechanisms outside its Apple Store system. The case can yet be appealed in the US Supreme Court.
