Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

Fortnite inspired greeting card?

I have a start up greeting card company and want to print a father's day card in our local (New Zealand Māori) indigenous language that is inspired by the blue Victory Royale banner with a father's day greeting substituted for the 'Victory Royale' text. The background is a plain landscape image I have bought. It basically looks like a still image of the game.

Would I be able to sell greeting cards of this type?

Please note our fan content policy does not allow use of Epic IP for commercial purposes (https://www.epicgames.com/site/en-US/fan-art-policy).

With that said, we aren't really able to speak to whether a work inspired by Fortnite infringes our intellectual property, particularly where we can't see the work. I can say, however, (1) it sounds like you have rights to the background image and (2) Epic doesn't own blue banners.
