It seems like that Fortnite is experiencing a suing trend, and the most recent lawsuit against Epic Games comes from "Backpack Kid", a 16-year-old who is considered the one who created the famous "Floss dance". Just like many other cases before, this may end up being a troublesome contention in court, especially when he had appeared in one of Fortnite events before. As indicated by TMZ, the boy himself doesn't appear to be particularly irritated by his dance utilization, implying that it was his mom and manager who are in charge of the claim. Meanwhile, Fortnite new updates and occasions aren't backing off.

This is not the first time Fortnite has been sued over a popular dance. Alfonso Ribeiro, who is playing as Carlton in The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, is also suing the studio. His law office said the artist is blaming the studio for taking his move - generally alluded to by enthusiasts as the Carlton dance - to use for the emoji Fresh in the game.

Ribeiro is at present completing his copyright over the Carlton dance. This declaration goes right after another suit against Epic Games. Terrance Ferguson blamed the developer for taking his dance, which is called "Milky Rock", for another Fortnite emoji, and called it exploitation of black Americans. Ribeiro is also referenced as another case of this situation in Ferguson's claim.

Alfonso Ribeiro is also suing Epic Games for using his dance without permission.

Epic Games has seen a few lawful debates with regards to their most famous game. PUBG Corporation, the maker of PUBG, sued Epic because of the games' similarities. However, the suing was at last canceled.

Epic has also filed a couple of lawsuits itself. The developer once sued a quality assurance tester who spilled information about the game's season 4 along with a couple of streamers for promoting ways to cheat in Fortnite.

All the suing aside, the studio has been getting a good profit out of the rising popularity of Fortnite- - which is the most Googled game in 2018. In the wake of finding success with cross-platform play on Fortnite, Epic Games is imparting its innovation to different companies wanting to accomplish the same. Recently, they also open a new game store on PC with the desire to compete directly with Steam.
