Epic Takes Another Cheater to Court for Publicizing Battle Royale V-Bucks Exploit

Epic Takes Another Cheater to Court for Publicizing Battle Royale V-Bucks Exploit  - MMORPG.com

It appears that Epic is going to keep making examples of those who would cheat in Fortnite. A  new suit has been filed against an individual named Yash Gosai from Auckland, New Zealand. The filing indicates that Gosai found an exploit in the Battle Royale portion of the game that allowed players to obtain the game's premium currency, V-Bucks, without paying for them. He then broadcast a "how-to" video on YouTube that has since been removed.

According to Epic, "Defendant's videos demonstrating the exploit infringe Epic's copyrights in Fortnite by copying, reproducing, preparing derivative works from, and / or displaying Fortnite publicly without Epic's permission."

V-Bucks are premium currency that are purchased in bundles starting at $10 from the in-game shop. They are then traded for skins and other cosmetic items.

"Players who search for and promote exploits ruin the game experience for others and undermine the integrity of Fortnite." Epic wrote in documents filed in California. "Players who use exploits to avoid paying for items in Fortnite are stealing from Epic."

You may remember that on October 12th it came to light that Epic was suing a pair of cheaters over videos posted for others to take advantage of game exploits.
