  • Epic Games files to appeal ruling in Apple lawsuit

    So they appealed the permanent injunction issued to Apple as well? Nice! Saves them the trouble. Hoping a stay can be granted for the couple of years it takes for appeals to be exhausted, and only then will the anti-steering provisions be removed.

  • Epic asks Apple to reinstate developer account so it can re-release 'Fortnite' in Korea [u...

    They’re using Apple’s intellectual property (thousands of APIs) to build their app. These are not open source to my knowledge and are likely licensed to them under Apple’s terms. Apple spends a boatload of money developing all of these “building blocks.” If they decide they don’t want someone using their licensed software, especially someone who is not paying for it, then so be it. Just my opinion.

  • Epic calls Apple's 'Fortnite' & developer tool block 'overbroad retaliation'

    The hearing has disappeared from Judge Chen’s calendar tomorrow. Trying to figure out why.

    I am thinking now is the time to trim just a little. I’ve read Epic’s motion for temporary restraining order and I found the hearing on the calendar for next Monday with Edward Chen. I researched the judge and feel like there is a strong chance Epic secures injunctive relief at least until they lose in the end, which could take ages. In the meantime, they’ll be allowed to violate their developer agreement all they want and there’s nothing Apple can do about it.
    There isn't any need for injunctive relief, nor a temporary restraining order, as Apple has only asked that Epic meet its responsibilities as a developer, and requirements for inclusion in the store. Epic could easily meet those requirements without impacting the lawsuits.

    Epic did all of this "grandstanding" to gain attention. That happened, and from here on, it will be all legal decisions and regulatory solutions, not opinions of the tech community.
    Hope you guys are right, as AAPL is 100% of my portfolio, but if you read the 40 page court filing (https://cdn2.unrealengine.com/epic-v-apple-8-17-20-768927327.pdf  - pages 18-32 specifically) and consider the judge hearing the motion, which is being heard in the liberal 9th circuit, the bar / burden is quite low for the temporary injunction to be granted. That aside, many are calling for a 10% broad market pullback this week on CNBC. I am going to buy some more in-the-money LEAP calls if that happens. Long AAPL!
    In that case, you absolutely should "trim" a little.  Diversification is your friend.  So maybe 90% AAPL and 10% index funds ;-)
    Yes yes, I’ve been told that my whole life, hasn’t worked out too terribly for me. I’ve sold as much as I can until the next tax year comes around.
