Phase 2 of the "Epic vs Apple Legal Universe" continues with Apple's own dose of fiery rhetoric, not only in defending against Epic's complaint, but also in attempting to take the fight back to Tim Sweeney and company.

What are the strengths and weaknesses of Apple's arguments (and argument style)?

What are "punitive damages" and how does Apple want them to be used to punish Epic's alleged "fraud"?

And just why are we back in the world of 70 page document filings, anyway?

Sometimes Apple wonders why it even brings the thunder...in Virtual Legality.
