Apple vs Epic Stay Granted

A stay from the Northern District Court nullifies, for the moment, the one victory scored by Epic Games in its antitrust lawsuit against Apple (thanks The Verge). Last year it was ruled a temporary restraining order would be made permanent, forcing Apple to allow apps to collect money outside of its in-app system. Now this ruling is be suspended pending appeal (and further legal bills), meaning apps must still use Apple's IAP system for now:
Apple has demonstrated, at minimum, that its appeal raises serious questions on the merits of the district court’s determination that Epic Games, Inc. failed to show Apple’s conduct violated any antitrust laws but did show that the same conduct violated California’s Unfair Competition Law. See City of San Jose v. Off. of the Com’r of Baseball, 776 F.3d 686, 691–92 (9th Cir. 2015) (“[U]nder California law ‘[i]f the same conduct is alleged to be both an antitrust violation and an “unfair” business act or practice for the same reason—because it unreasonably restrains competition and harms consumers—the determination that the conduct is not an unreasonable restraint of trade necessarily implies that the conduct is not “unfair” toward consumers.’” (quoting Chavez v. Whirlpool Corp., 113 Cal. Rptr. 2d 175, 184 (Cal. Ct. App. 2001))). Apple has also made a sufficient showing of irreparable harm, see Disney Enters., Inc. v. VidAngel, Inc., 869 F.3d 848, 865–66 (9th Cir. 2017), and that the remaining factors weigh in favor of staying part (i) of the injunction and maintaining the status quo pending appeal, see Nken v. Holder, 556 U.S. 418, 434–35 (2009).

Therefore, we grant Apple’s motion to stay part (i) of paragraph (1) of the permanent injunction. The stay will remain in effect until the mandate issues in this appeal. The existing briefing schedule remains in place.

You act like Walmart is the villain... they cut costs so they could cut prices so they could get customers. The reason Walmart is frequented heavily by low-income customers is because low-income customers can't afford to shop at Whole Foods or Dick's Sporting Goods. In fact one of the markets with the largest recent retail growth is in discount stores for low-income customers..

As for manufacturing... I saw an old guy in a store the other day ask somebody why the store didn't carry scissors made in America instead of China. I wanted to tell him he wasn't going to pay $30 for a pair of scissors, that's why, but just shook my head and ignored him.
