After Apple’s countersuit requesting damages caused by Epic Games’ breach of contract, Epic CEO Tim Sweeney said that Apple is losing “all sight of the tech industry’s founding principles.” Sweeney referred his comment to Apple’s claim that the ongoing legal dispute is “nothing more than a basic disagreement over money,” in a Twitter thread.

He restated the reasons behind ‌Epic’s campaign against Apple’s ‌App Store‌ policies and talked up about creator rights. Sweeney winded up his tweets saying this is a fight for change, instead.

It all started after Fortnite added its own direct payments that bypassed App Store’s in-app purchase system last month. Since then, the duo are in a legal fight, with next hearing due on September 28.
