PUBG sues Fortnite

PUBG sues Fortnite
From, ((PUBG Corp., an affiliate of South Korean studio Bluehole Inc., is suing the Korean unit of North Carolina-based Epic Games, arguing that its smash hit Fortnite copies many of the characteristics of its own PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds. The suit, alleging copyright infringement, was filed in South Korea. ))
Really, PUBG, you're going to sue your competition when they made a better product than you.  This has to be one of those stupid lawsuits since the Maddox lolsuit. This is just sad and sour grapes. The folks at PUBG are jealous that someone took their model and make it better.
You really shouldn't sue the company that you are paying for the game engine from the company you are suing in the first place.  It makes no sense. PUBG is built on the Unreal engine which owns Fortnite.
This happened during my break and it made me laugh. This lawsuit is going to have a negative impact on PUBG. While PUBG might have a case, I don't think it is going to get very far.  A lot of IPs are based on other popular IPs like Star Wars was born out of Star Trek.  Star Trek doesn't have the right to sue SW.  Like GTA Online, Fortnite is printing money while PUBG is still an unfinished game.
Instead of suing Fortnite, how about making your game better?
