An important development took place on August 13, 2020. Epic Games, the developer of the Unreal Engine game engine and producer of Fortnite, announced that it has filed a monopoly suit against Apple. https: //www.technopat.net/2020/08/14 / ...

Let's put this in our pocket now. But we can see that there are big gaps in both the published Epic video and what happened. So before dealing with the animosity between Epic and Apple, we need to take a closer look at the 1984 IBM and 1998 Microsoft events on which Epic based its actions.

In 1984, Apple computer company launches the Macintosh. It also defines this computer as a user-friendly product. But the Macintosh's debut ad is still spoken today. The ad is inspired by George Orwell's novel 1984. From Apple's perspective, IBM has established a monopoly on computer technologies and wants everything for itself. Steve Jobs, the resounding ad that was shown during the Super Bowl, explains it this way.

Years later, Epic referred to the same ad, accusing Apple of monopoly and violating its App Store contract.

In another incident that started in 1998, this time Microsoft was sued for dominating OEM manufacturers. The trial, conducted under the United States anti-monopoly laws, ended in 2001.

As a result of the lawsuit, Microsoft agreed to open its APIs to third party developers for the last 5 years. Windows' imposition of Internet Explorer has ended and users have begun to choose their default browser.

These are the two important events Epic Games used against Apple, on which it is based.
