Game developer and publisher Epic has filed another copyright infringement lawsuit. This time it’s against a person who ‘stole’ from the company by generating free V-Bucks. In a complaint filed at a California Federal court, Epic demands damages from the alleged perpetrator.
Game developer and publisher Epic has settled one of its copyright lawsuits against cheaters. Both parties agreed on a permanent injunction which, if breached, will cost the cheater $5,000 in damages. In a separate case, Epic also responded to a letter sent by the mother of a 14-year-old offender that made headlines in recent days.
Epic Games’ efforts to take several ”Fortnite” cheaters to court over copyright infringement is backfiring. In one of the cases, the defendant has turned out to be a 14-year-old boy. The kid’s mother informs the court that the game publisher has no right to go after her son, accusing the company of using him as a scapegoat.
Game developer and publisher Epic is taking ‘Fortnite’ cheating very seriously. After banning thousands of accounts, the company has now filed lawsuits against two prolific cheaters of the popular Battle Royale game. ”Nobody likes a cheater. And nobody likes playing with cheaters,” Epic notes.
