PUBG Corp Files Suit Against Fortnite Dev Epic Games

Korean-based PUBG Corp has filed suit against U.S. based Epic Games, though the lawsuit seems limited to Korean jurisdiction. The lawsuit claiming copyright infringement says Fortnite may be replicating the experience PUBG is known for. Fortnite is estimated to have made over $300 million in the month of April alone from its various microtransactions. The waters are muddied by the fact that PUBG licensed out the unreal engine from Epic while developing the game. Is there any merit to this? Are the games different enough? Should H1Z1 join in on this lawsuit of Battle Royales?
