Alfonso Ribeiro got some bad news when a court decided that the “Carlton Dance” he made popular on TV can’t be copyrighted and denied his quest to own the rights to the dance.

If that’s not enough the U.S. Copyright Office broke down the dance and said, “The combination of these three dance steps is a simple routine that is not able to be registered as choreographic work.”

Alfonso has filed lawsuits against the makers of Fortnite and NBA2K for allegedly using the dance without his consent.

Did you ever think Ribeiro would win this case?
