Epic appeals to Apple’s decision, thinking about the meaning of the term “button”

Epic Games has appealed the verdict in the antitrust case against Apple last week, which was heard in California earlier this year.

Epic was unable to convince the U.S. District Court that Apple was implementing an illegal monopoly by preventing iOS apps from providing alternatives to Apple’s payment processing system, and the ruling was almost entirely in favor of Apple. However, Epic did get a huge victory: According to California’s Unfair Competition Act, one of Apple’s rules that prohibit apps from advertising for its own payment methods is considered anti-competitive.
