The judgment between Manzana Y Epic games for Fortnite and the App Store it has definitively started and has been taking place since yesterday.
Since about the middle of last year, Manzana Y Epic Games, the creators of Fortnite, have an open front between them. All derived from the expulsion of the popular game Fortnite from the App Store for bad practices of Epic.
In case you do not remember, we will put you in a situation. From Epic Games they included in their popular game Fortnite a payment method other than App Store that eluded it and to offer payment services the apps have to do it from the App Store.
Yesterday the trial between Apple and Epic Games properly began
Because of that, Apple banned Fortnite from the App Store Since by the external payment method when going against the rules of apps of the App Store. As a result, crossed lawsuits between both companies, but also from Apple they gave Epic some margin to reconsider and, in case they did not, they would delete the Epic Games developer account.
The latter did not finally occur since the justice ruled that the damage that would be caused would be greater, but if it did not force Apple to return Fortnite to the App Store. And although all this was the aperitif, since yesterday the trial as such between the two companies has been taking place.
It will probably be aimed at the theoretical monopolistic position and abuse of power of Apple by Epic and compliance with the rules that developers accept when entering the App Store and that cannot be violated by Manzana.
At the moment it is not known how long the trial may last, nor, of course, the result of it. But, in any case, it will be interesting to see how this litigation develops between these two technological giants and, we, we will try to keep you up to date with all the news.
