"Epic vs Apple" has finally arrived and as Tim Sweeney now famously said we're in for some "fireworks"!
On day seven we find ourselves deep in the mire of economics "expertise", but with what little clarity is provided, the judge might herself be arriving at a possible solution to the parties' continued clash.
This 'dismal science' may be dismal, but I'm not quite sure it's science...in Virtual Legality.
