05 May 2021, 01:05 am
Epic's lawyer said in a previous statement that Epic is suing Apple for the welfare of all developers. Despite this, Epic Games CEO Tim Sweeney confirms that he would take a special deal reducing commissions if Apple would offer. He said it in reposne to his lawyer's question during the trial on Tuesday.
The question to Sweeney may have underscored Forrest's reason for fighting the tech giant. In a report by CNET, the attorney said that "Epic is suing for change, not just for itself, but for all developers."  
Lawyer of Epic Katherine Forrest asked Sweeney if he would have taken a deal with Apple, which would mean getting special treatment while other developers still suffer.

Could make it harder for regulators to take action.
Epic Games faces an uphill legal battle against Apple in an antitrust trial starting in the US this week, and a defeat for the maker of "Fortnite" could make it harder for US government regulators to pursue a similar case against the iPhone maker, legal experts said.
But win or lose at the trial, Epic, which has pursued an aggressive public relations campaign against Apple alongside its court pleadings, may have already accomplished a major goal: drawing Apple squarely into the global debate over whether and how massive technology companies should be regulated.

Biden to urge epic fight against inequality in Congress address
World
April 29, 2021
Washington: President Joe Biden will unveil a nearly $2 trillion spending plan to boost the middle class Wednesday as the highlight of a sunny, yet audacious speech to Congress signaling the Democrat’s desire to reshape America.
Speaking to a joint session of Congress on the eve of his 100th day in office, Biden will hail what on Tuesday he called "stunning" success in vaccinating Americans -- a national effort that has transformed the country from coronavirus catastrophe to leader in global recovery.
But with solid approval ratings and a Democratic majority -- albeit razor thin -- in Congress, Biden feels he has momentum on his side to tackle politically difficult challenges.

Thomas Bywater's top picks of New Zealand's 950 scenically appointed public stopovers.
There's no doubt, New Zealand is a looker.
Aotearoa's natural landscapes command a special power to attract longing looks from tourists and luxury lodge builders. There's an entire subgenre of "#CabinPorn" (not as naughty as it sounds) dedicated to Kiwi bach cool.
Self-contained, scenic and stunningly remote – there are few accommodations that capture the independent, untamed spirit of the landscape quite so neatly.
However, a break in a luxury setting needn't cost the earth.
In New Zealand, we are lucky that more than a third (33.4 per cent) of all land is legally protected conservation land. About 8.5 million hectares comes under the protection of DoC. Among them are well-known landmarks and no fewer than 950 scenically appointed cabins, in all shapes and sizes.

STOCKHOLM (Reuters) - Fortnite maker Epic Games said on Tuesday it had filed a complaint with Britain’s competition regulator in support of its investigation into Apple Inc’s anti-competitive behaviour.
The UK Competition and Markets Authority said earlier here this month it had opened an investigation into Apple after complaints that the iPhone maker's terms and conditions for app developers were unfair.
Payment policies related to Apple’s App Store have long drawn complaints from app developers as they requires them to use its payment system, which charges commission of between 15% and 30%.
