Ended the lawsuit brought by the two basketball players from the University of Maryland (Jared Nickens and Jaylen Brantley) against Epic Games: the duo had accused the company of having copied the ballet Running Man to make a emote of Fortnite without, of course, to acknowledge the paternity to the two sports.
In 2016, Jared Nickens and Jaylen Brantley played as said at the University of Maryland, and on this occasion have popularized the ballet, the Running Man, repeated with success in various TV programs and talk shows american. Two years later Epic Games resumes the steps of the dance to create an emote of Fortnite, which made its debut during Season 6 of the Battle Royale.
Immediately, Jared and Jaylen have then dragged the Epic in the court, now a judge, however, has given reason to the publisher, the american, claiming, as works of this type are not supported by the law and rejecting the claim for compensation equal to five million dollars.
In the past, responding to the accusations of the rapper 2Milly, Epic Games has a defense, claiming never to have copied any of the ballet and how the poses and steps of the dance are not protected by law, and then there is no violation of copyright about it.
