    It's in several other games, but I guess it got too big? I'm sure he knows, but I dunno how he'll win this :mellow:

    I wonder
    If anyone owns this dance it must be the creators of Fresh Prince, because the dance surfaced / was made on that show, and shown there first.
    Sure, it's "his" dance, but not really, unless he trademarked it himself.

    He might have a case we will just have to see, epic games even named the emote "Fresh"
    also TF2 had the same taunt added almost 2 years before fortnite which they called "The Carlton" and he didn't seem to have a problem with it, something epic games will probably use as an example

    He has no chance of winning due to the fact that in the past he has freely admited to ripping the dance off from Courtney Cox in Bruce Springsteen's Dancing in the Dark video.

    Never heard of this so clearly he isn't getting enough attention.
    Way to miss the point.

    Please explain why, and how the fuck you patent a dance of all things.

    What's next? Patenting hand gestures? No! Patenting expressions!

    But aside from the studio owning FP, what about the hired choreographer that probably taught him the move? And the Springsteen video? I could see it maybe having traction if Epic called it "The Carlton" but this... no, just no.

    Saw this on the news before work this morning and my first thought was, again? I remember he sued just dance or something similar for having ‘his’ dance in it.
