A rapper says he will sue decision makers for the video game Fortnite to steal his dance movement.
The popular online game introduced a battlefield dance, known as an “emote”, as claimed to be the US rapper 2 Millys signature move Milly Rock.
Players can buy the dance, called “Swipe It” in the game, for about $ 5 (£ 3.89), which allows their avatar to perform it. The sale of dance moves, which allows players to stand out, is a way that the free game gives money.
“They actually sell the special drag. It’s for buying” Brooklyn rapper 2 Milly, who first performed the dance 201
4, told CBS News. “That was when I really was … ohh, it will not be too long.”
He added that he does not intend to sue “to all millions” but wants to protect “what’s mine”.
The popularity of the online video game in popularity means that the emotions have been highly copied, with Fortnite dance classes also available in the David Lloyd fitness center.
But the creators of the dance movements are unfortunate that Epic Games, Fortnite’s developers, benefit from their work.
