Fresh Prince star Alfonso Ribeiro has dropped his lawsuit against Epic Games over its use of the Carlton dance in Fortnite, but it's merely a logistical pause of the proceedings.
The move comes days after the U.S. Supreme Court held in a unanimous decision that under the Copyright Act, a plaintiff can't sue for copyright infringement until the U.S. Copyright Office has either granted or refused the person's application for registration.
The U.S. Copyright office in February declined to register the Carlton dance, finding it to be merely a "simple dance routine." Ribeiro had sued Epic Games in December.
