[BBC] Legal battle over Warcraft 'bot' - Page 5

post #41 of 49
I know im gonna get flamed for this, but im going to say it anyway.

This should NOT be in the court of law. That is ridiculous that a matter of cheating in a video game is taking up our legal resources.

This is not copyright infringement, it is CHEATING, plain and simple. If blizzard can't stop people from cheating than that is too bad so sad.

Don't waste taxpayer's money in "Real life".

LoL... taking up our legal resources ?

Do you watch too much law and order ? Or maybe not enough.... Cases like this set precidents my friend.. precidents that will affect gaming...

And how is this wasting taxpayers money ? Please explain... as if there aren't millions of other frivilous lawsuits out there way worse than this ?

You knew you were gonna get flamed ? Well duh.. say something really stupid that you know is retarded..

I guess bad attention is better than no attention ? lose.

You have any idea how backed up courts are? In L.A it's a total nightmare. The fact that there are other frivolous lawsuits out there does not excuse this one (or should it). There is no reason Blizzard couldn't handle this on their own.

Are you kidding me? You are excusing this by saying that there are lawsuits more frivilous. Wth kind of logic is that? "Oh there are plenty of retarded lawsuits out there so Blizzard should be able to have one too."

The fact is that YOU are mad because you play the game and YOU are suffering from this so it is clouding your judgement. If people were cheating in CS:S and Valve couldnt stop them, i wouldnt being saying that valve should sue the programmers that make the cheats.

Sue the bot users not the creators. The users are the ones breaking the contract.
The bot programmers need to have an account to test thier programs on. Gold-sellers do thier own botting on live payed accounts.

So in essence, they are breaking the ToS in the same way you or I would if we decided to manipulate the game.

Every single botter, be it a firm selling gold or just a single lazy player, agree to not use them before they can log in for the first time, and after each patch.

The big difference is that the individual lazy player isn't making a profit off of it, so there is no real reason for Blizzard to sue. The large gold selling firms make craploads of money by doing something they agreed to not do when they opened thier account. Both are in the wrong, but would you rather they take out 5 lazy kids, or 5 large groups? That is why they are going after the sellers. Probably reaching in thier reason for the suit, but they will most likely win because they have the financial backing to do so. They will either win by default, or drag it out until the sellers are broke and cannot fight anymore. Either way, they will win.
In progress...

HAH! SRO! I botted to 79 and 50%. There is no way to play that game without a bot. I was legit until bot version 1.09, then I broke down and used it.

I broke my addiction after I blew up my computer...no need for a bot anymore...but I wish I had hit 80 before my mobo exploded...

~Gooda~

Wow, rage out much? You basically confuted yourself in your own hissy fit. All he did was state his opinion. You win man, YOU WIN!

On topic;
I agree that this lawsuit is something that Blizzard should be forced to control theirselves. The fact that it will go to a court of law is just ridiculous. Ban the user... what seems to be the gap in logic blinding Blizzard to this simple solution?

A case such as this does seem unlikely as a candidate for infringement, but if Blizzard sees it as such and files a suit, there is nothing to be done except bringing the case through the court of law. It may seem dumb but in any situation, no matter what the owner does or what type of issue occurs, violating or disregarding a code of conduct or copyright is liable for a lawsuit. Not that it's of any concern to us anyway, seeing as how this doesn't really effect us.

BTW I just want to add that there are worse things out there that your tax dollars can be "wasted" on. Not trying to flame, I just want you to be aware.

Not necessarily. If american law is anything like constitutional english law, then the court will find the program wasn't made in good conscience and was made purely to manipulate a game that does not belong to them. All these loop holes and techincal law cases are all NCIS and CSI. It does not happen. A court does employ common sense.

Ever seen judge judy? Those are cases that don't deserve to be in court.
