"Epic v Apple (The Fortnite Cases)" Month Continues!

The Game Theorists and their 13M YouTube subscribers have thrown their hat in the ring with "Game Theory: The Secret Fortnite Agenda NO ONE Is Talking About!"

Unfortunately, not only is the title inaccurate, but the foundations upon which the video rests are... inaccurate as well. Fortunately, that's what we're here for.

Let's clear some stuff up...in Virtual Legality.
