On September 10, the long-standing lawsuit between Apple and Epic Games was decided. However, Epic Games was dissatisfied with the ruling and immediately appealed.
In the ruling, the court ordered Apple to injunction to recognize third-party payment systems in the App Store. This has long been what Epic Games had been asking for, but the court also ruled that Apple was not in violation of antitrust laws. In this way, Apple has to accept payment methods in the App Store without going through its own payment system, but if it goes through its own payment system, it can collect a 15-30% fee as it is now.
Tim Sweeney, CEO of Epic Games, tweeted about the ruling, saying that the ruling is not a win for developers or consumers. It was clear that he was dissatisfied with the contents of the judgment. In an interview right after the verdict, an Epic Games spokesperson also stated that they would appeal the verdict.
Then, on September 12, it was found that Epic Games immediately appealed to the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals. Although the documents submitted to the court document little detail on the legal basis for the appeal, reports suggest that Epic Games is likely to continue accusing Apple of violating antitrust laws, which were dismissed by the courts.
