Epic games is currently in the midst of an ongoing legal battle against a 14 year old kid and his mom. So what happened?? Let’s back it up.
Epic games has had crazy success with their battle royal style game Fortnite. Unfortunately with popularity brings cheaters. Epic games has been suing websites who manufacture the cheat software.
The controversy stems from a young YouTuber, Caleb “Sky Orbit” Rogers, who is being sued. His mother came to his defense essentially saying he can’t be sued for using the cheat software because he did not make it.
Where it gets tricky is young Caleb wasn’t simply using the cheat. He uploaded a how to video on how to use the cheat software onto his YouTube channel. When Epic games asked him to take it down, he refused forcing Epic games to protect their product.
Who do you think is right? The game company or the Caleb and his mom??
