Irving David considers the various claims of copyright infringement against Epic Games, creators of “Fortnite Battle Royale” as a Talking Point in the June 2019 issue of “Dancing Times”


In his article, Irving explains that whilst literary, artistic, musical and dramatic works are all acknowledged to enjoy copyright protection, it is sometimes overlooked that an original choreographic work is itself specifically recognised and protected under copyright law as a “dramatic work”.

Such copyright protection has become highly topical as the consequence of the various legal actions currently being considered against Epic Games, creators of the hugely popular video game, “ Fortnite Battle Royale”.
