Epic, one of the world’s largest video game producer, has recently sued a YouTuber by the name of Golden Modz for selling Fortnite Battle Royale cheats. Copyright infringement, Epic says.
The YouTube channel basically contains videos of cheats shown in action for games such as Grand Theft Auto 5 and Fortnite, and those cheats are then sold via a separate website.
Epic is using the legal route trying to combat cheats. If they will be successful in their copyright claims, remains to be seen. If they are, it’s game over for the cheating YouTubers.
