Mobile players are eager to play the game on their iOS devices, and now, a new ruling has just been laid in court in Australia which is a massive early victory for Epic over Apple. But, there’s still lots of way to go.
Epic secures major victory in court
This court battle between these two major corporations has been ongoing within the United States, but also in Australia. There has been some progress made down under.
The basic premise of how this legal action between Epic and Apple initially began, was due to the fact that Fortnite added a payment system within their mobile game, which allowed players to negate the 30% App Store fee that players would normally have to pay.
Apple then suddenly removed the game from their App Store, and then, Epic sued the company and have been in legal battles in court since.
Dexerto says “However, Apple appealed the case in Australia, arguing that the case should be limited to the US District Court. However, Epic counter-appealed arguing that a separate trial in Australia is justified as it is a public policy concern.
On July 9, the Federal Court in Australia ruled in favor of Epic Games, and the trial there will go ahead.”
Apple plans to appeal the decision however, with a spokesperson stating: “The initial decision in April from Australia’s Federal Court correctly ruled that Epic should be held to the agreement it made to resolve disputes in California. We respectfully disagree with the ruling made today and plan to appeal.”
Both sides are still waiting for this judgment to be laid down within the US courts, which should come within the next couple of months.
