      However trash Fortnite is, lets not pretend trying to copyright a fucking dance isn't bullshit
    • _bishwaa_
      Why tf do people hate on fortnite so much, kids have always done dumb shit, its part of the reason being a kid is fun, you did it to when you were a kid

      The actor who played Turk in Scrubs also wants to press charges, and I guess the backpack kid too. You can absolutely trademark dances. Think about it: you can't include the Macarena in anything you're profiting over without paying royalties because it's a *trademarked dance*. Y'all salty af.
    • PewDiePie verified
      You can't copy write or trademark a series of movements ie a dance. Good luck with that lawsuit buddy.

      What's funny is that fortnite isnt even the only game with emote dance ..... they just know forntire has money now so they found something to attack 😂 destiny has practically all the same dances and no shade is thrown

      This is not good if he wins that means we have less freedom of parody or to dance because if this keeps up people will start sueing over colors in games and movies because "it's in their piece of work"
    • YermTerragon
      Copyrighting a dance is a ridiculously complicated and frowned upon process that he likely has not gone through. He is going to lose

      Why doesn't he sue other games for the same thing? Destiny has his dance doesn't? That just means he was jumping on a bandwagon for money

      I know that if Fortnite wasn’t so pointlessly hated he wouldn’t have sued the game. Just a popularity play.

      Doesn’t make sense cuz it wasn’t even his show it’s NBC’s and THEY own carlton’s persona

      Seriously guys? I swear your opinions change depending on the contest. There was a feature before this that was complaining about the lawsuit and everyone in the comments was like "damn, people are so money-hungry they sue because of a dance. What an idiot." But now that the cintext of the meme is

    • XXX__FeatureB4Death___XXX
      the people who call him a broke actor or a cry baby are the millennials who play Fortnite all day instead of going to school. Also he’s been famous since 1993 and he has a net worth of 15 million dollars so yeah and he can sue for piracy of idea which is a real thing.
    • Bloc_Boi
      Look I’m glad he’s trying to sue fortnite but the moment he wins then every single dance can be copyrighted, doesn’t matter if it’s on fortnite or not, then every past YouTube video can get copyrighted for a dance that’s not theirs
      Bloc_Boi 19 dec
    • theantisaint
      To be clear it’s not *a dance move, we are talking about an entire routine ripped off from him move for move and very precise without payment, credit or even acknowledgement

    • MattDiamondd
      Nope, you cannot sue over a dance. There was no copyright, therefor there is no infringement. Any judge with any shred of common sense could see that. Also, why wouldn't the Napoleon Dynamite producers sue for the one they made? Because they arent retarded, and know it would be fruitless.

    • TRVP_ZodiaK
      You shouldn't be able to copyright a dance, the moment that's a thing any dance in a video could be taken down if their dance is in it, just like music. So as much as I want to stick it to fortnite, this still isn't good for people. Wonder why people don't sing happy birthday in movies? That's why.

    • DaWarden
      Yeah, he has no chance. You cannot copyright a single dance move for one. Secondly he doesn't own the copyright to the fresh prince, and funniest of all he didn't even invent the move. Bruce Springsteen did in his video for "Dancing in the Dark."

      There isn't a copyright in place for dance moves before. You can't sue for anything more than MAYBE the title of the dance in a description

      You can't copyright or trademark a dance tho, anyone can use it for anything. If you're going to Sue Fortnite, Sue Destiny and TF2 as well they have your dance in there and you have to pay for it, TF2 even has it listed by name

    • Qwei
      Okay, but you can't copyright dances that is fucking bullshit, it's like "oh wow you can move your body in a specific way," but anyone else could do that. It's different from copyrighting text because that actual requires knowledge and is not 'common knowledge' if someone has to read it to figure

      As much as I want Fortnite to be obliterated like the cancer that it is, you're not gonna win a court case like this. You can't just put a patent on a dance move, and it would be insane for this case to even be considered in a court of law.
    • Banzookie07
      He got the idea from somewhere else but y’all know damn well that’s his dance. Its only known bc of him. It’s literally known as the “Carlton dance”. Fortnite even calls it “fresh”. They screwed themselves over. He’s gonna win and rightfully so.

      Nothing will happen. The court will think its the most stupid case. Judge: “and you did not copy right the dance have you?” Man suing: “no your honor but...” Judge: “case closed epic games youre free to go!”
