Epic Games has taken legal action to remove Fortnite APK & # 39; s that are hosted on internet-sharing sites. The most recent victim was the APK Mirror site, which had to comply with a DMCA action (Digital Millennium Copyright Act).
When searching for the Fortnite APK in APK Mirror, the user gets the message: "It looks like we had to remove the app because of a DMCA action from Epic Games Inc."
Epic Games have destroyed the Fortnite APK and APK Mirror download pages based on intellectual property rights.
The removal or fading of the page through the DMCA action occurs in two ways. First the page is taken from the Google search results. Then Adsense is also removed, Google ads that allow the content producer to take advantage of the page.
Only these two actions are already devastating for every website and have a very negative impact. But there is still a third, much heavier action. The latter prohibits the display of content related to the app and the game. Although it has already been removed from Google searches and the like. In that case, the site is legally ordered to remove the page or impose legal sanctions.
We quickly searched at lumendatabase.org, a site where we can see DMCA lawsuits on the basis of copyright and you can see that many well-known vehicles have been trapped to publish APK without being of the official source, ie the Epic Games website.
Renowned sites such as Gamespot, The Verge, Eurogamer and others have been reluctant to share Fortnite unofficial APK links on the internet.
– You can download the game directly from the official website
And can the company ban the distribution of an APK, even if it is free? Yes! Epic Games wants Fortnite APK downloads to focus only on the official website.
The developer has already released the Fortnite download of the installer for everyone to test. Just go to the official website and download the APK. You must also sign up for the beta test of the game.
Even if you download APK somewhere else, the game does not work! It only opens if the person is already registered in the beta and has already received the invitation to test Fortnite on his Android.
