Australian courts ruled in favor of Epic Games which took a man to court for selling cheated and compromised Fortnite accounts. It was determined that Brandon Despotakis had violated the Fortnite end user license agreement and terms of service, infringed on Epic’s copyright, unlawfully sold in-game accounts, and cheats to other players. With the loss, Despotakis has been forced to close his business and pay Epic for damages, which the company has said they will donate to charity.
“Selling compromised player accounts and cheat technologies puts people’s information at risk and ruins the experience for people who are playing fairly,” read a statement from Epic at the conclusion of the trial. “We take the illegal sale of these items seriously and we’ll pursue all available options to make sure our games remain fun, fair, and never pay-to-win.”
Despotakis’ online shop included items like aimbots, limited-time “Full Access V-Bucks accounts,” and “inactive” accounts that included rare or popular skins and pre-completed battle passes.
It is still unclear if anyone who purchased anything from Despotakis’ shop will be penalized by Epic.
