2 Milly sues Epic Games over Fortnite's 'Swipe It' dance emote


#1

I think we all knew this was coming. Not sure they can do much. Can you copyright dance moves?

I really can’t blame the creators of the dances for wanting their cut of that 2 billion dollar pie. It will also be interesting to see if all those celebs that said they don’t care actually start to care if 2 Milly wins.

I can’t imagine it would be difficult for Epic to tally up their profits from sales of that specific emote.

If they agree that it does constitute infringement of some type, I can see it snowballing to a settlement.

I was surprised when Fortnite first started doing it.
Perhaps they will offer the counter that they’re more popular than him and are actually going to increase his sales as a result of this.
