Friend eSports must know that this is not the first time Epic Games, a developer of Fortnite Battle Royale, has taken legal action to show uncompromising attitude towards the fight against cheats. But this time the demand was dropped on YouTubers who were openly caught using and promoting cheats, even selling it! They are Brandon Lucas and Colton Conter, these two YouTubers are being sued for using, promoting, and selling Fortnite cheats. For those of you who are curious, you can read the 35-page demands through .this site
In the claim, Epic stated that the two YouTubers had violated two articles in US law governing copyright, namely 'intentional interference with contractual relations' and 'unfair and deceptive trade practices and unfair methods of competition'.
Lucas and Conter are caught selling cheats via their YouTube channel which shows the aim bot function so the player doesn't have to bother mouse and aim at the enemy to kill him. In these demands, Epic feels confident that they have used their channel to promote and direct the cheat sales website. As a result, those who buy the cheat will use it when playing Fortnite and disrupt the Epic Games business to form a comfortable and fair game environment so far.
Epic also demanded that Lucas and Conter pay compensation for their treatment, starting from deduction of profits, loss of material suffered by Epic, attorneys' fees, to the costs resulting from their behavior. Even so, Epic has not provided exact figures about the price they have to pay in their demands.
What do you think about eSports? Surely this kind of punishment must be applied in order to give a deterrent effect to the sellers and users of the cheat, because the injured party is not only the player, but also the developer who made the game, agree?
