    You know it's funny. People all around the internet ate trying to feel different for hating Fortnite, when all I see is Fortnite hate. And honestly, if you harass and bully someone for liking Fortnite, then you're the childish one.

    This is just another case of big companies getting so blinded by money they forget where they're coming from - Like Universal Studio's trying to sue Nintendo for Donkey Kong only to have the case dismissed when it was revealed Universal stole King Kong years earlier in the first place by arguing it had become public domain.

    The truth is, while you can copyright a version or presentation of a genre you can't copyright a Genre itself and Battle Royal is a Genre.

    Going even further PUBG is a MOD of H1Z1 which is a MOD of a MOD of a MOD of a MOD of Counter Strike which is in itself a MOD of Half Life. So even without the Genre, EVERYTHING in their game aside from the very very few new innovations such as the butt guarding frying pan are off the table as things they can claim ownership of. And EVEN WITH the frying pan they cannot copy right the concept or image of a person wearing a frying pan and that frying pan stopping bullets - the only way to have any claim would be if the new game references PUBG itself while implementing the mechanic.

    You can't own:
    *Battle Royal as it's a genre.
    *Shooting games.
    *Finding randomized loot.
    *Toxic gas closing in.
    *Frying pans and any applications of them

    So take that off the table what does PUBG have? But if either one does win I would love to see the creators of Half Life sue 75% of the current gaming community & game developers for making their games with their antiquated technology.

    If PUBG won it would cause other legal systems to start shutting down and minimizing interaction with areas that follow along the set precedent in question. Which would in my opinion potentially cause a lot of variables to come into play causing disruption in both market and legal terms which may yield undesirable tensions between nations, their people, and even said nations own people going against the nation. TL:DR my thoughts are sometimes it better to take a loss than insist on a victory, may only make things more complicated or outright worse

    No fortnite wont be removed by PUBG its because an ex employee made Epic Games and maid fortnite Pubg wont ban fortnite because they're employee made Epic Games later on Tencent the creator of PUBG (maybe) bought Epic Games because of the success of both of the games that they created were created by Tencent Games but Tncent didnt make the intro of fortnite like the Tencent intro as you could see the intro
    Fortnite and PUBG has the same intro it will say Epic Games and dissapear and hop in to the game And it will appear and say PUBG Corporation
    And dissapear and hop into the game the only difference is the graphics,gameplay,and style so in this theory PUBG wont ban Fortnite but with they're power they could ban ROS and other copyright in fringement games that copied pubg or fortnite "Matpat your theory is wrong" (jkjk)
    And this is not just a Theory its a GAME THEORY

    If PUBG sues Fortnite then Epic can shut PUBG down. It runs on Unreal Engine 4 which Epic owns. That means PUBG needs to go solo or on a new Engine.

    I hate lawsuits. because of them, there can never be any new ideas or perceptions of ideas that anyone can have without being similar to another. I predict from this point forward that outside the main companies themselves, no one will ever be able to create a new idea or perception of an idea to refresh the franchise games etc. or even similar ideas to give gamers any chance of variety in gaming as a whole. and that conception of ideas even for movies will also soon come under attack for the same reason leaving all people with bland repetitive story ark, no originality or change in perception of an idea to where all entertainment will suffer the heaviest loss. the loss of patrons losing the bottom line and people no longer wanting to watch, play or even read anything by the main corporations that run the entertainment for the people. and that everyone will see entertainment as boring, mundane, unimaginative and costly bill that they do not want to pay. ruining any and all hobbies as well as social media to the point to where the internet like any other piece of entertainment will completely lose most of the followers and source creators to where there would never be enough ad revenue to compensate or justify running the social media or any other media. if lawsuits keep going it will be the death of all entertainment and far use will mean absolutely nothing.
