The first question the court has to answer is whether or not Pepper et. al. even have standing to sue. If yes, then the question becomes whether or not the 1977 ruling of Illinois Brick v. Illinois applies. If SCOTUS overturns Illinois Brick v. Illinois, it could open a legal Pandora's box against not only Apple, but Google and Ticketmaster. It could even extend to digital stores that mimic Apple App Store like Valve's Steam.
