Mother Defends Son Over Fortnite Cheating Allegations

Mother Defends Son Over Fortnite Cheating Allegations

After this though, Epic went a bit further by suing two cheaters, one of whom is a minor who chose to speak out about it on YouTube, and this is where things start getting more interesting and more complicated. Rogers then proceeded to challenge this takedown request, which put Epic into the position of either dropping the claim or file a suit against him, with the latter being the company's choice. She says her son never got her permission to play. Every time Epic took action, he simply created new accounts under false names and continued to play and cheat at Fortnite.

As well as new gameplay features, Fortnite will now be able to support the Xbox One X in 4K. However, this week some more details about the case came to light, including the fact that one of the defendants is just 14 years old.

The authors of the game stated that using cheats leads to loss of funds.

In a letter about the lawsuit filed with the North Carolina U.S. District Court, she took issue with several of Epic's claims.

Finally, Epic Games was accused by the mother of Caleb of using his son as a scapegoat, instead of going after the websites that offer these cheat codes and profit from sales.

"This includes better-quality reflections (including screen space reflections being enabled); higher quality post processes like motion blur, anti-aliasing, and depth of field; great draw distances; more detailed foliage; shadow casting enabled on more lights and objects; and higher resolution textures and shadows", adds Epic. You want to take it to cheaters, but the reality is, a large portion of them are just kids who don't understand what they're potentially getting themselves into.

The biggest point of contention revolves around the EULA agreement. We agree to these contracts without reading them or even understanding what types of behavior scale from prohibited to illegal.

Rogue online gamers have designed, sold or used computer code to crush competitors playing the popular "Fortnite" survival video game, spoiling the experience and the creator's profit potential, the game's maker charges in a series of lawsuits.

A 1990s-era update to federal copyright law sets up procedures where companies can demand that online service providers like YouTube remove material that violates the companies' rights. This was a free game. Cheating may be something developers have a legitimate interest in stamping out, but doing so by using their formidable resources to crush a 14-year-old would appear to be a step too far.
