‘Fortnite’ producer Epic Games petitions for return to Apple Store


Epic’s lawsuit against big-tech marks an on-going national debate over the role and power of big tech companies and whether regulatory actions are needed to curtail monopolistic practices.

Apple has previously been in the crosshairs for its practices within the Apple Store where it has been alleged that Apple removes major competitors from its platform whenever it feels necessary.

Google too has been targeted by the public at large and the federal government for its manipulation of user data and monopolistic practices.

While it remains unclear whether Epic will emerge victorious from the lawsuit, big tech certainly has entered the spotlight. A court victory for Epic would signal possible legal actions in the future to take on big tech’s role in the economy and American society.

Until that day comes, consumers will continue to watch big-tech’s influence grow which will undoubtedly raise concerns from many people.
