Fortnite: "Dancey Dance"
Posted: Wednesday December 19th, 2018 by Woody

In the last few weeks Epic Games, creators of Fortnite, have been sued by 2 Milly, Alfoso "Carlton" Ribiero, and Russell "Backpack Kid" Horning for using their dance moves in the game without permission, credit, or compensation. And, this may just be the tip of the lawsuit iceberg. Most of Fortnite's "emotes" are easy identifiable, and the game's developer hasn't even bothered to credit the original creators.

Right now the argument from Fortnite's side of things is that Dance Moves can't be copyrighted. As a creator, you'll forgive me if I wrinkle my nose up at that and side with the folks these dances can EASILY be attributed to.

The sweet ass moves in the comic? I call those "the dad snap" and "the wiggy wiggy wiggy".
