With the official Epic vs Apple court fight (at least) 3 months away, the parties continue the unheralded and resource-intensive process of pulling thousands of documents together from all corners of the globe.

And one of those corners? Bellvue, Washington, home of the little PC company that could, Valve Corporation.

But what's Valve got to do with it? Quite a lot actually.

Let's jump in.

Maybe they should have tried to subpoena Half-Life 3...in Virtual Legality.
