PUBG Corp. Takes Epic To Court Over Similarities Between PUBG And Fortnite


The company be hide PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds, PUBG Corp., is taking Epic Games to court over the similarities between Battlegrounds and Fortnite.
The copyright infringement suit filed now reveals that PUBG Corp. had in fact filed an injunction against Epic in January. The movement now is likely because Epic is expanding Fortnite's Battle Royale mode into East Asia, with publisher Neowiz, developers and publishers of MMORPG Bless Online, partnering to bring it to net cafe-style businesses in South Korea. The suit was filed in Seoul Central District Court against Epic Games Korea specifically. By filing suit, PUBG Corp. hopes to get a court to determine whether Fortnite's Battle Royale mode infringes on Battlegrounds, particularly over things like items and user interface. Thoughts ?
