I don't know what Epic is trying to accomplish, but the U.S. and U.K. justice systems are clear on contract disputes where one company is in breach of another's. The courts generally do not side with the company in wanton violation of their contract.
It looks like, all publicity stunts to keep epic's name in the news. His pissing in the wind, and standing down wind.
It was absurd stupidity when tiny tim started all this and it still is now. It's got frivolous failure written all over it
and iirc the US has already said no once, which is why they went to the UK.
I sense Epic is trying to flood the courts in the United States, U.K., and Australia to increase the chance Tim gets the outcome he wants. He's hoping that what happens in one region, other areas will follow suit—or the outcome forces Apple and Alphabet to adjust their business model to avoid having fragmented business models. As for the first reason, what the U.S. or Australia decide does not influence other regions' legal outcomes or visa verses. For the second reason, companies as big as Apple and Alphabet have no problem creating "pocket" business models that have no bearing on other regional markets. They do it now in Australia versus the United States. By bringing so many regional cases, Epic's strategy is also diluting their case.
