Despite months of disagreements between Epic Games and Apple, the bickering continues. Both sides, who have been in a legal struggle since the beginning of August, think they are right in the dispute.

According to The Verge, Epic Games threw another stone at Apple, saying in a recent court file that Apple “has no rights over the fruits of Epic’s labor.” There is no response from Apple yet.

Epic Games: Apple has no right to reap the fruits of Epic’s efforts

Game developer and distributor Epic Games changed Fortnite’s mobile payment system to avoid paying Apple a 30% App Store commission last August. Upon Epic’s move, Apple made a retaliation by removing the game from the App Store, and then Epic filed a lawsuit against Apple.

As the war between the two companies escalated, Epic revealed that the tech giant was threatening to remove iOS support for Unreal Engine. This meant that future games for iOS or Mac would not be able to use Epic Games’ Unreal Engine engine.

In court, the judge rejected Epic Games’ request that Apple add Fortnite back to the App Store, even though a ruling prevented Apple from removing support for Unreal Engine for iOS. Thus, with the Unreal Engine, the concerns of those who develop products for Apple’s iOS or Mac platforms are eliminated.

On the other hand, the Apple front stated that it would sue Epic for alleged violation of the App Store contract. The Cupertino-based tech giant’s application included counterclaims for unfair enrichment and unfair interference with its customers. At this point, Apple argues that it is right in its behavior, that Epic’s actions and abuse have caused significant damage to the company.

Epic says in its latest file that its actions are far from the wrongdoing Apple claims. In other words, he believes Epic is not stealing anything from Apple. Apple has not yet responded to Epic’s defense. US District Judge Yvonne Gonzalez Rogers has said the case must go to a jury.
