"He who fights monsters should see to it that he himself does not become a monster. And if you gaze for long into an abyss, the abyss gazes also into you."

Frederick Nietzsche

Epic Games v. Apple Inc.

In a choreographed corporate dance deftly executed by Epic Games founder and luminary Tim Sweeney this past August, Apple Inc. was seemingly goaded into Sweeny’s well-placed legal trap. Since then, the likes of Spotify, Facebook and other companies have added their voices in support of Epic’s cause, with Match Group going so far as to release a statement chiding Apple for using “its dominant position and unfair policies to hurt consumers, app developers, and entrepreneurs.” While Epic is enjoined by more and more corporate advocates, the playerbase of Fortnite, it’s most popular game, is left with an almost unplayable version of its world on iOS, at least until the upcoming antitrust trial is over.

How you terminate an employee can make the difference between a graceful transition to avoidable negative outcomes like a dramatic exit or even a lawsuit. We gathered a panel of experts and asked them - is there a "right way" to fire an employee?

We would like to thank our guests for this episode:

As with many legal questions, the answer is - it depends. With various food-restrictive diets becoming the norm, it's difficult to cater to everyone's personal needs. However, if the meal is company-sponsored, and your employees' restrictions are based on religious choices or medical issues, you could run afoul of employment law by not offering reasonable accommodations. Regardless of the reason for restrictive diets, refusing to accommodate them during a work function may find you with dissatisfied - and hungry - employees.

We believe that building strong relationships is one of the more important parts of being an effective lawyer. Networking looks different right now, but it's not only still possible - it's important! What are you doing to network during the pandemic?

In a ruling against Uber, the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court has determined that only linking to Terms of Service or terms & conditions on a registration page is not enough to bind users to them. The court found that "Uber's terms and conditions did not constitute a contract with the plaintiffs," since Uber did not require acceptance of the terms - in stark contrast to the process drivers must go through in which they have to agree to terms twice. This is a notable ruling, as many companies conducting business online make an effort to place as few barriers as possible in the process of creating user accounts or online registrations, and checkboxes for the acceptance of terms are often seen as barriers. But the court noted, "As Uber is undoubtedly aware, most of those registering via mobile applications do not read the terms of use or terms of service included with the applications."
