Epic Games and Apple (AAPL) are facing off in court. Epic Games accused Apple of violating antitrust laws with its App Store fees.
Analyst Dan Ives of Wedbush said in a note to clients that ultimately he believes Apple will win the case "while defending its golden jewel App Store ecosystem."
"We will be watching this trial closely and the ultimate ruling likely in the next three weeks for any ripple effects that could negatively impact the App Store fee structure going forward which we view as fortress-like despite the Epic noise," Ives said. "A negative ruling vs. Apple would be a major gut punch to the App Store crown jewel monetization engine. "
