Fortnite’s emotes are a lot of fun and almost always worth a purchase, but Epic Games has run into some bumps along the road. Lawsuits from artists claiming exclusive rights of inspiration keep trying to take Epic down.
Epic Games has had several lawsuits taken up against them over the Emotes added to Fortnite. One of the most prominent ones was the ‘Carlton Dance’ or ‘Fresh’ emote.
All of the lawsuits against Epic Games have failed as American laws simply do not support these claims. Another artist has decided to take up the cause nonetheless.
