Epic Games delivers a copyright strike to themselves

Their trailer for Season 6's Battle Pass was removed.

Developers and publishers are very protective of their intellectual property, and rightfully so. In fact, it's not uncommon to find these companies issuing copyright strikes to content creators on platforms like YouTube, but now Epic Games has raised eyebrows with its recent actions.

As noted by several users on Reddit, Epic Games seems to have issued a copyright strike on... well, themselves. Their own trailer for the Fortnite Season 6 Battle Pass had been taken down, and for a while fans were hit with the following notice when trying to watch it:

"Fortnite Season 6 Battle Pass' is no longer available due to a copyright claim by Epic Games, Inc."

The video has since been reinstated, and can be viewed below, but it's certainly one of the more bizarre Fortnite stories we've seen, especially since we don't really know how this happened.

What do you make of this?
