Epic Games won a favorable ruling against Apple in September. While most of the Epic v Apple decision was in Apple’s favor, the court found that Apple required iOS developers to use its built-in payment processing system to violate California’s Unfair Competition Law. Apple was then given 90 days to allow third-party payment processors in the App Store.

Epic appealed quickly to the ruling. Apple also appealed, but not before Epic blacklisted Epic and refused to restore its developer account until all appeals had been exhausted and the decision in the matter is “final and non-appealable.” After the ruling, Epic CEO Tim Sweeney stated that it could take five more years for the appeals process to complete.

Apple won today in this process with a decision by the US Court of Appeals, Ninth Circuit. It requested that the order requiring third-party payment systems be allowed on the site be stayed until the appeals process is complete. Apple’s strict App Store payment rules will remain in effect for the time being.

“Apple has shown, at least, that its appeal raises serious doubts about the merits of district court’s determination Epic Games Inc. failed in showing that Apple’s conduct violated antitrust laws, but did show that the same conduct violated California’s Unfair Competition Law,” states the ruling (via The Verge).

“If the same conduct is alleged as an antitrust violation and an unfair business act or practice for a similar reason–because unreasonably restrains trade and harms consumers–the determination of the conduct not to be an unreasonable restraint implies that it is fair toward consumers.”

This question is directly directed at the September ruling, which found that Apple is not violating antitrust laws but is violating California’s Unfair Competition Law. Apple has also demonstrated that it will suffer irreparable damage if it permits third-party processors before the case is settled.
