    Isn't Epic itself being targeted by these kinds of lawsuits? Shitty company ...

    Well, car licenses expire and they can't sell any more copies so there's that. FH2 can't be bought any more unless you get a second hand disc.

    Thats not how licenses work.

    The licensee is permitted to continue to sell the existing content under the expired license but may not create future products with the licensed content.

    The excuse of a license ending is a farce, microsoft knows it and copyright attorneys know it too.

    Could they just take all of them? They are the most annoying thing in the game then the clothes. I’m in a car,to drive shallow fluff every reward wheelspin that brings nothing to the game.

    How can the Floss guy sue Epic for something that isn't his anyway? Weird AF.

    Nothing of substance was lost, but no doubt they as simply taking a precautionary measure just in case.

    I suspect they just don't want to deal with a law suite. You can trademark a dance move and its name but really don't think that would hove up here.

    No, I think this is a preventive measure to avoid being sued. Basically, the creators of FH4 don't want to attract the same kinds of lawsuits that Fortnite is currently going through.
