Paul Swanson is Quoted in Wall Street Journal on ‘Fortnite' Creator's Latest Motion Filed Against Apple

Holland & Hart antitrust attorney Paul Swanson, was quoted in the Wall Street Journal Sept. 5 tech article entitled, “‘Fortnite’ Maker Asks Judge Again to Return Game to Apple’s App Store.” The article discusses how Epic Games Inc., the creator of the ‘Fortnite’ game, filed a motion for a preliminary injunction against Apple on Sept. 4. Epic Games filed a federal lawsuit last month accusing Apple and Google of “monopolistic behavior” after pulling ‘Fortnite’ from its App Store and Google Play store. Apple and Google removed the ‘Fortnite’ game after Epic introduced an in-game payment system that would eliminate the 30% fee certain developers are required to pay the companies for in-app purchases.
