Last year, the game Fortnite held a dance competition for players to win a chance to have their dance moves used in the game.
One entrant quickly became a fan favorite. His fellow players petitioned Fortnite to use his dance—and won!
The rules made it clear that players weren’t going to be paid, and that Fortnite has the right to use it for publicity.
Trial lawyers sued Epic; the same firm that has already sued Epic for four other dances.
They wanted to make a killing…until a recent Supreme Court decision paused all of their lawsuits for now.
If they ultimately succeed, it could be “Game Over” for everyone.
