Alfonso Ribeiro's Case Over 'Fortnite' Dance Is About More Than Copyright Laws

Actor Alfonso Ribeiro's case against Epic Games for its use of "the Carlton" dance in "Fortnite" might come down to a jury's sympathy, rather than copyright technicalities, intellectual property lawyer Gaston Kroub told Cheddar on Tuesday.

"Could a sympathetic jury decide that these \[artists\] deserve something from 'Fortnite'?

That's something that remains to be seen," said Kroub, a partner at Kroub, Silbersher & Kolmykov.
