'Fortnite' Developer Epic Games Is Suing Apple for Anti-Competitive Practices

So are they basically using the “Kraken” strategy of throwing out a ton of lawsuits and just hoping one of them sticks?

More or less, although Epic kind of has Apple over a barrel here - if Apple gives some kind of special exemption to Epic, everybody’s coming to get an exemption, so Apple needs to beat Epic in court. It’s certainly doable, but Epic’s big enough that Apple can’t just do the legal equivalent of swatting a fly.

Part of me is like “Good, let them fight” while the rest is just so unhappy that basically the only way to make a big corporation do anything “good” is if it’s to the benefit of another big corporation.
