Google proglašen za nezakoniti monopol

In a landmark decision, three years after Epic Games filed a lawsuit against Apple and Google for accusations of monopolistic control over app stores, a jury has delivered a verdict in favor of the video game producer. The unanimous decision declares Google as an illegal monopolist with its app store and in-app payment service within the Google Play platform.

The ruling states that Google possesses monopoly power in the distribution markets of Android applications and in-app payment services. Additionally, it concludes that Google engaged in unfair competition and caused harm to Epic Games.

Instead of using quotes, it can be described that the verdict establishes Google’s illegal practices in order to increase profits, suppress competition, and hinder innovation.

Google has announced its intention to appeal the ruling and emphasizes its strong competition with Apple and other app stores on Android devices and gaming consoles. On the other hand, Epic Games expresses satisfaction with the verdict, deeming it a victory for app developers and consumers worldwide. The decision confirms that Google has enforced unlawful practices and highlights the need for freedom for app developers to establish their own app stores and payment systems on the Android platform.

The punitive measures against Google are yet to be decided as the judge is yet to make a ruling. It is important to note that Epic Games did not seek monetary damages but rather requested Google to acknowledge that every app developer should have full freedom to create their own app stores and payment systems on the Android platform.
