The US Justice Department reportedly wants to take its stand on Apple’s antitrust issue with Epic Games. The trial is due to go on trial on October 21. The appeals court said the Justice Department has been empowered to send a representative for a hearing next month. In 2021, a California judge ruled against Epic Games, arguing that Apple was acting like a monopoly in its App Store for digital goods or services.
according to recent report good By Reuters, US Justice Department officials are asked to participate in an oral debate next month in Fortnite maker Epic Games’ appeal of court damages against Apple. The matter is to be heard on October 21.
Epic Games sued Apple in 2020 claiming the US tech giant violated antitrust laws with its App Store rules. Developers are required to pay a commission of up to 30 percent of purchases within Apple, as per the rules.
As noted earlier, in 2021, a California judge ruled against Epic Games, with Apple mostly victorious, allowing the commissions to stand.
As of now, Apple may still mandate that its payment system be used for in-app transactions. Both sides are appealing.
