Epic Games Sues a Popular YouTuber For Cheats

Epic Games

Epic Games is well-known for its hard stance on cheating in the popular Battle Royale Fortnite. This time the company has a beef with a popular YouTuber Golden Modz and his partner Exentric. Golden Modz Youtube channel is filled with videos of using cheats to mock players of GTA 5 and Fortnite and recording their reaction. The used programs can be purchased through the website that linked in the channel description.

Epic Games is accusing Golden Modz and Exentric of copyright infringement, breach of contract, and tortious interference case as well as selling cheat programs.

TorrentFreak has obtained the copy of the complaint by Epic Games that can be found here (pdf).

Epic’s been interested in Golden Modz for quite some time, apparently, as the cheater made a video about 3 weeks ago complaining that the company is discriminating against them by deleting their videos:

So 9 of my recent videos were removed by epic games through a copyright strike. I feel as if they are discriminating against me as there are 1000’s of other creators on youtube who make Fortnite videos.
