Today in "Epic vs Apple", we look at popular YouTuber Linus Tech Tips' take on the case. But while the effort is laudable (and much more fulsomely presented than other videos we have previously evaluated), it is still somewhat "correct adjacent".

So let's dive in.

We're always happy to see important discussions happening on YouTube...in Virtual Legality.
