Bittergrounds: PUBG Properly Sues Epic Games For 'Copyright Infringement'

10444 ratings | 199532 views
Playeruknown's Battlegrounds continues to look like a sore loser as the PUBG team file against Epic in a desperate attempt to halt Fortnite's Korean expansion. As usual, those grapes look very sour.

This is as stupid as if id Software sued 3DRealms because Duke Nukem 3D was similar to DOOM (1993) and Wolfenstein 3D.

The funniest thing is that they’re suing Epic Games, even though without Epic, PUBG wouldn’t even exist. Being that they created the engine that PUBG runs on, the Unreal Engine, in the first place. I guess chivalry no longer exists nowadays. But overall, I’m glad that Fortnite is enjoying more success than PUBG. I don’t care much for both games since I’m not really much of a fan of the BR genre, but it’s definitely what these crappy devs deserve for being such bitter scumbags and not realizing that you can’t claim copyright over an entire *genre.* One that even predates your own game! I mean, they could spend less time suing other people and more time fixing their buggy mess of a game... *but that’d make too much sense, wouldn’t it?*

Battle Royale is just a large scale variation of Last Man Standing, which has been a staple of online FPS gaming before it became popular.

"you cannot trademark br". I think you are focusing too much on this. It is not about that, it is more specific than that and you know it. You got you rant vid and lots of views though, so congratulations on not being much better than bluehole really.

"protecting our copyright" You don't have to protect your copyright. Copyright isn't something that is just lost. You can lose it after some 100 or so years ( depending on whatever the law currently says, or you can create a document stating you are giving up your copyright. But you do not have to protect it to claim copyrights.

Frying pans were being used as weapons in skyrim in 2012! and winner winner chicken dinner was a phrase coined a lawyer called Edgar woods in 1933!!.. As far as i know, though, Dyna Blaster on the Amiga was the first battle royale style game... 26 years ago!! im not sure if the copyrights to these even exist on these, but claiming them for because you have them in your game now? Maybe PUBG should be sued aswell for copyright theft and bullshitting....

So I give PUBG $20 for their early access game and they turn around and spend the money on litigation against a rival company in a foreign court system? They'd be better off porting their ugly ass, broken game to PS1.

"It was ludicrous, the lawsuit is ludicrous". And this is an observation coming from a man who has been sued by James & Robert Romaine; a pair of monkeys who wiped their asses with a sheet of paper and called it a lawsuit.

Korean gamedevs always do the same. Release something semi decent then ruin it due to pure utter greed.
Of course the cowards are going specifically to a Korean court. It's the only way their sorry ass can win. It's not just hilarious but so stupid and desperate its actually getting annoying. Just shut up and let it go already Bluewaffle.

Someone should tactfully break to these guys that they didn't invent the Battle Royal gameplay style and thus don't have a copyright on it and also that you can't copyright gameplay mechanics. Also that they don't really have a leg to stand on when pretty much all their art assets are bought from asset stores including. the damn frying pan.

So when will valve sue fortnite for using their frying pan? And dead rising for using their method of "scavenge for items to use as weapons" And as for battle royal, the hunger games should sue PUBG for even attempting the concept of "battle royal!" And then there's that chinese movie that was also a battle royal back in... I think 2010 (It's very gorey so I don't suggest people look up without a warning). Seriously PUBG, grow up! Your game lost to a better game in its genre! Face it. It's like Dota 1 on warcraft being beaten by LoL, it happens; someone makes a better version and you should be flatter not angry; they followed your footsteps. Using blizzard again, warcraft 2 got beaten by command and conquerer; what did they do? They made a parody easter egg song in game when you type a cheat! Doing stuff like this PUBG, just makes you petty and the more you do, the less people will play your game.

I really hope they get sued from the company that made Battle Royale the movie about 15 years ago... btw they had a frying pan used as a weapon. Funny how the copycats sue others for copying them... stupid

Capcom makes great 2nd games: Mega Man 2, Street Fighter 2, Breath of Fire 2, etc Valve makes great 2nd games: Left 4 Dead 2, Portal 2, Team Fortress 2, Half-Life 2, etc. Maybe Capcom should sue Valve because they made great 2nd games first 🤔

Not to mention the fact that many of the assets in the game are actually owned by Epic. And the game runs on UE4, owned and developed by... Epic... Which is just hilarious. Imagine if Epic just got fed up with Bluehole and PU, and just decided to pull the UE4 license. Except Epic won't do that because they aren't petulant children.

Darth Vander (1 month ago)
if they really wanted to try this it should have been a year ago or so when fortnite was first coming out with its battle royale mode. its way too late now, there probably 50+ major gamnes in dewvelopment for next 3 year with a battle royale mode. ID didnt try and sue doom clones. they made a better product. Fuck off BlueHole. Minecraft hunger games was at least 1 example of prior work, and im sure there are earlier ones i dont know. If i was mircosoft/mojang i wouild send a cease and desist to Bluehole and see how they like that

H1Z1 Devs should sue BlueHole and create a human-centipede of battle royal bitterness.

Huh, imagine if Battleborn had sued Overwatch over it being more successful. That's how silly this sounds. It's petty and it's sad. Oh, better example. Sony suing Nintendo for doing a "mascot fighter" game, even though Sony's All Stars Battle wasn't the first time it'd been done and was still fairly popular. If Fortnite had crashed and burned kinda.. kinda LIKE Battleborn, I don't think PUBG would've cared in the least, but someone came out with a superior product and reeeeee.

I feel like Jim doesn't have time to wear his gloves with how often he's throwing them down and slapping people with them. "[...] in an art department." Solid point, Jim. Solid point.
I'm starting to really dislike PUBG now, I might check Fortnite out now if I ever need a Battle Royale fix again.

Are they going to sue the Roman Empire as well because its gladiator arenas are blatantly copying PUBGs designs? Do they honestly think they invented the concept of people fighting to the death in an arena? Its ludicrous.
KingTater (1 month ago)
What I don't get is why Jim get so upset by this. It's just business doing business things. It's almost like Jim have a stake in this.
I remember something my mother told me when I was young and irritated that toddlers were copying me “Imitation is the greatest form of flattery”. In other words, suck it up and be a good example. It’s a shame the PUBG people didn’t get that memo.

I was talking to a friend about this and if anything they better hope like hell the people who DID start the genre don't go after them let alone the author of the book in which the whole genre itself is based around. xD Goodness this company is just a bunch of little crying children at this point. I can name several games where frying pans came out before PUBG they're really fucking stupid if they even try to use that as "we started it and it's unique" PLAY SOME FUCKING VIDEO GAMES! You will see them LONG before your pos game ever came out.

Being a fan of pubg I honestly hope people abandon this game I don't care what the next game is that people flock to but I hope it's soon and I hope pubg spends millions of dollars trying to sue them and failing deleted it from the Xbox a few weeks ago and this just makes me feel like I made the right choice not that they're greedy ass cares since they already got my money I think that dude that runs Blue Hole would fit right at home with EA or Activision
Bobby Nick (1 month ago)
Yeah they're better off copying things from other games (it works for the Saints Row series) to make their game better, then just suing randomly things while looking stupid doing it.

If frying pans are such a big deal valve should show them left 4 dead 2 and sue THEM.

If only they would use their money to improve the overall quality of their game rather than hiring lawyers to sue other developers for breathing the same air that they think they own.

I mean really PUBG is just ripping off DayZ which is just ripping off Minecraft Hunger Games, which is just ripping off minecraft, which is just ripping off Dwarf Fortress. Yes, it all leads back to Dwarf Fortress.

If anything all these lawsuits hurts them more than if they won. Gamers enjoy competition in the market because it means more games, more variety. So trying to stomp other games out doesn't sit well with gamers. At least in my opinion.
Goku x Sephiroth (1 month ago)
I mean, as much as it must suck to be surpassed at what you do by someone riding the coat tails, I have to admit that just on the surface, there's no doubt- PUBG looks like a cheap steam asset flip, and you can't own game mechanics, whilst Fortnite has a very distinct and appealing style, with the PUBG mechanics plus the building one. PUBG looks like hundreds of other games before it, whilst Fortnite has become its own thing. They are going to have to pull something out of the woodwork to make this lawsuit work because on the surface, there's no argument at all.
super mudbug (1 month ago)
Goku x Sephiroth yeah, pubg uses 90% premade assetts, and the unreal engine (made by fortnite)

Of course their petty paying epic to pretty much make a battle Royale game with potentially their own code would make anyone bitter. If I had to hand you schematics for a lawnmower for my bussiness to get the required parts ,and you turn around and create your own when you see my succes with the lawnmowing business then I'd be pised too.

Bluehole, more like Red hole once Epics lawyers finish with them. Bad move Bluehole, this is going to be very ugly for you. Epics going to send in a goddamn battalion of armies, drag the legal venue back to the united states and build a human bonfire of sorrow of the sort only an angry corporate lawyer can. And it will be glorious

If for some fucked up reason, PUBG wins this lawsuit, it would mean that all genres are limited to a single game. It would be absurdly restricting on the game industry.
