Fortnite and Epic Games get rid of another millionaire lawsuit for copyright infringement

One of the most distinctive things about Fortnite is, without a doubt, its use of famous dance moves to create in-game emotes.

Today, they rest somewhat calmer due to the dismissal of one of these demands.

At the end of March of this year, I was talking about Kyle Hanagami, the choreographer who headed the list of creators who they had denounced to the popular battle royale for having copied one of his dances. Although the dance was quite similar, if not identical, in the end everything has fallen on deaf ears.

As PCGamesN colleagues comment, on August 24, the judge handling the case decided to dismiss Hanagami’s complaint. According to his reasoning, despite looking alike, there are not enough creative elements similar enough to think that it has been a plagiarism.

Although it is normal to be surprised, especially seeing both dances at the same time, these types of demands are very complicated to bring to fruition, since it is very difficult to prove which elements are originalwhich ones are not, what they have been inspired by and to whom the authorship belongs.

Be that as it may, Fortnite continues to hit hard with its new collaborations, and we see fewer and fewer cases like this. This may be for two reasons: first, people are realizing that they do not usually bear fruit; while the second could have to do with Epic, who does not want to see each other wrapped in more eggplantIt’s because of how that affects public perception of your brand.
