Did Fortnite copy Apex Legends adding ‘Respawn’ mechanic to game?

It looks like Fortnite took a page out of Apex Legends’ book, introducing the respawn points for Fortnite Battle Royale.  If you look around the map, you’ll see storm-vans with holograms on top.  There is also an image of a key-card on the side of the van.  From the looks of it, this is implying you can retrieve your teammates card and return it to the van to respawn them on top!

What do you think? Is this blatantly copying Apex Legends, or is this simply a good quality of life change for Fortnite?
