A ruling against Epic in the fight against apple has set the cat among the pigeons. Epic’s gamers can not access Apple’s store or play their games. This fight was closely watched as it was seen as not just a fight between two companies. Consequently, it is a landmark case that will dictate how the apps market will be operated for years to come. As a result, Apple is seen as holding a monopoly too strong to break. Even though the ruling went in its favour. The judge also ruled that it could not penalise or act against the interests of Epic’s affiliates around the world. This is by no means the end of this matter with other parties involved yet to throw their hat into the rink.
Whatever the final outcome there is a body of opinion that this powerful monopoly power has to be curbed in some way to allow for fair competition in the market place.
