Epic Files Lawsuits Against Alleged Fortnite Cheaters

Recommended Posts

Last week, we reported on Epic Games promising to combat cheating as one of their highest priorities with Fortnite. This week, the house behind the Unreal engine but their money where their mouth is and filed suit against two people who allegedly made it easier for other people to cheat in the game.

As Polygon reports, Epic filed a lawsuit in North Carolina naming two defendants, Brandon Broom and Charles Vraspir, for creation of software that enabled cheating in Fortnite. The two are said to be associated with a cheating site where Vraspir allegedly uploaded a program for cheating at Fortnite and Broom, who lives in Canada, also allegedly modified the software to bypass Epic's detection.

Epic additionally claims that Vraspir is a known cheater within Fortnite and has been banned nine times from the game. The company is suing the two individuals on the basis of copyright infringement, each instance of which can carry a fine of $150,000.

The full documentation of the suit can be found at the source link below, but Epic is clearly firing a shot across the bow in order to protect the integrity (and high player-count) of their new title. Fortnite is available on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. The client is a free download, with Battle Royale mode being freely accessible.
