Epic Games, inspired by its success with “Fortnite,” challenged Google and Apple’s app store monopolies, claiming they stifled competition and took hefty cuts of earnings.

While initially losing to Apple, Epic recently won against Google, with a jury finding Google guilty of running an illegal monopoly.

Despite Google’s plans to appeal, Epic sees this as a major win for app developers and consumers. (Trending: Dr. Fauci Says the Unthinkable About Going To Church)

“Today’s verdict is a win for all app developers and consumers around the world,” Epic wrote.

“It proves that Google’s app store practices are illegal and they abuse their monopoly to extract exorbitant fees, stifle competition and reduce innovation.”

“Over the course of the trial we saw evidence that Google was willing to pay billions of dollars to stifle alternative app stores by paying developers to abandon their own store efforts and direct distribution plans, and offering highly lucrative agreements with device manufacturers in exchange for excluding competing app stores.”

“This is, of course, what we know,” Epic said.

“From the CEO down, Google employees willfully re-directed sensitive conversations to chat, knowing that their contents would be deleted forever.”

“The evidence presented in this case demonstrates the urgent need for legislation and regulations that address Apple and Google strangleholds over smartphones.”

The case reflects a larger trend of challenging tech giants, signaling a shift in the status quo.
