The famous game fortress night was removed from the app store, claiming that the game violated Apple’s in app payment rules. Then Epic Games, the developer and publisher of the game, filed a lawsuit against apple. < / P > < p > epic filed an indictment in the Northern District Court of California to prove the monopoly of Apple’s app store. Earlier today, epic added its own payment processing system to the IOS version of Fortress night, a move that clearly violated Apple’s app store policy and apple removed the game from the app store. “Epic filed this lawsuit to end Apple’s unfair and anticompetitive practices. Apple maintains its monopoly position in two different multi billion dollar markets in violation of the law: (I) the IOS application distribution market, and (II) the IOS in app payment processing market. < / P > < p > epic is not seeking financial compensation from our hospital for the harm it has suffered. Epic is not looking for a good deal for its own company. Instead, epic is seeking injunctive relief to promote fair competition in these two key markets, which directly affect hundreds of millions of consumers and tens of thousands or even more third-party application developers. Apple has imposed unreasonable restrictions on the distribution of IOS apps, and app store is the only way for apps to enter the iPhone or iPad, according to epic. Epic also accused apple of unreasonable restrictions on IOS in app payment processing. < / P > < p > epic has no objection to Apple’s requirement that developers distribute apps through the app store. However, apple developers are not required to pay for all of their digital products through the Digital Fortress of apple, which means that they pay for all the digital products in Apple’s system. “Through its developer agreement and illegal policy, apple explicitly allows developers to distribute applications to users and excludes other solutions, which is an illegal binding behavior,” epic said in the complaint The prosecution of epic mainly relies on the Sherman Antitrust Act of 1890, which is a law used by the United States to break monopoly in the early 20th century, and it is still the pillar of American antitrust law at present. Epic claims Apple has violated six provisions of the act.
