The judge's ruling seems reasonable.
No it's not, it's a terrible ruling. Apple should have complete say over who is selling and what is sold on their storefront. In other words, "The management reserves the right to refuse service." Devs should be going through Epic's storefront to begin with. I don't see how or why this should be Apple's responsibility. It sounds like the judge doesn't understand this or gaming in general, especially making statements like this doozy....
“The record shows potential significant damage to both the Unreal Engine platform itself, and to the gaming industry generally
Significant damage to the gaming industry in general? And how is that exactly? I'll bet dollars to donuts this appealed and overturned.
