Epic Games proposes Google app store reforms after antitrust win

(Reuters) – “Fortnite” video game maker Epic Games on Thursday asked a U.S. judge in California to force Google to make some changes to its Play Store.

The request came after a trial last year where the Alphabet unit was accused of abusing its power as a gatekeeper for apps on the Android mobile platform.

Epic made its proposal in a filing to U.S. District Judge James Donato in San Francisco, who presided over the blockbuster antitrust trial that ended in a jury verdict in December against Google.
