What is it about the Epic v. Apple case that led to a Guide to the iPhone? There are actually many things that happened in this case, and much of it was covered in detail in the Electronic Arts vs. Apple litigation that was held in June of 2021. There were many parties to this debate, including but not limited to the lawyers for both companies. The main legal issue was over whether or not the games were canceled too early. We’ll take a brief look at some of the things we learned from this article.
In the summer of 2021, the plaintiff’s lawyer, Michael J. Caple, brought a lawsuit against the company, Apple Computer, Inc. He alleged that Apple violated anti-plagiarism laws by allowing a program that was programmed by a programmer to allow players to “hack” the digital game programming. That is called “cell phone unlocking.” What does this have to do with the lawsuit? A lot!
You see, there was a guy from the courtroom that refused to let the attorneys in the courtroom discuss all the facts of the case. Why? Because he didn’t want to testify about what had actually happened in the courtroom. And what about this guy? Did he have any ties to the defense? Did he have any connection to the case?
No one quite knows, but some speculate that he may have some knowledge of the case, and some feel that he may be one of the hackers that actually brought the game into the public’s eye. His attorney said that he would present evidence to the court later on, and it didn’t seem that he was ready to do so at this time. The judge in the court ordered him to produce more evidence, and that is what he did. He presented evidence to the court that he might be a witness.
Why is this so important? It shows just how little we really know about the inner workings of this law firm. For example, the first video that was introduced in court shows Steve Aoki, the founder, and CEO of the company, talking to his employees about how great the iPhone is and the way that it will improve their lives. But you have to wonder how much Steve Aoki knew about the company before he started talking to his employees on-screen. Was he compensated for this performance?
The other thing that you may not realize is that this particular video shows no facial expressions or anything. It was recorded by a hidden camera inside Aoki’s office. What we are seen in the video are his motions and nonverbal cues, which can mean that he did not actually realize that he was being filmed.
There are many more videos and audio exhibits out there that were used in the Apple vs. Android case. However, you will always remember the Pod Save America vs. Google case. This was the first case where a judge ruled against Google and the judge felt that Google was blatantly taking advantage of the situation.
Even though Apple won the trial, it must be said that it was a very difficult time for them. In fact, the entire trial could easily be won back then with a simple motion. However, they lost because they did not know how to effectively communicate with their lawyers. The video and audio recordings from this epic clash will undoubtedly be remembered by many as one of the turning points in this case.
The two companies eventually came to an agreement. Although the terms of the settlement were not disclosed in the courtroom, it is safe to assume that it was for an amount in the billions. The epic video and audio recordings will also serve as a reminder of future legal video situations. There is no doubt that this particular case was the tipping point for many of Apple’s competitors. They will surely study this case closely to see what mistakes to avoid in the future.
There are many other things we have learned from the epic clash between Google and Apple. For example, we now know that it is impossible for a company to dominate all of the data transmitted over the Internet. We also know that it takes many billions of dollars to compete with big businesses that have unlimited resources. Finally, we now know that it takes a lot of money to get into the daily market. Small businesses do not have the same opportunities that large businesses have and it is likely that small businesses will continue to be smaller than large businesses in the future.
It is interesting to note that the biggest lesson from the epic v. apple trial is that a video can change the way a court rules. This video established that a company could misrepresent facts and present false evidence in a legal proceeding. The ruling also demonstrated that a video cannot be considered as proof in a legal matter. However, it also demonstrated that attorneys can show video evidence in courts to prove their points and to convince juries.
