“Fortnite makers sue Montreal game tester for allegedly leaking online map” by Morgan Lowrie, The Canadian Press

The Canadian Press quotes Montreal lawyer, Michael Shortt, in an article on video game studio taking legal action against Montreal game tester.

Michael Shortt, a Montreal-based intellectual property lawyer with law firm Fasken, believes the lawsuit is likely less about money and more about sending a message to workers.

"If they've suffered serious commercial losses on a worldwide scale, (the defendant) is not going to have the assets to pay that back," said Shortt, who specializes in the video game industry.
