Google caught in a lie about Play profits?

Epic just showed us an apparent Google email where someone (not clear who) admitted Google was lying about not making money from Android apps.

“We have previously said that we don’t make money from [Android Market, the previous name for Google Play]. We are now lying,” the email snippet read.

Back in the day, Google said “we do not take a percentage.” Now, apps make Google $12 billion a year with a 70 percent profit margin, says Epic.
