L2fullyquote:"For Blizzard's part, they claim that making a copy in RAM of the game's information constitutes copyright infringement, [but again, that's only because Glider is misusing those RAM files] -- every user everywhere needs to copy parts of the game into RAM in order to run it."bracketed for emphasis. I think Mike covered your little comment there, mensrea. For my part, I would defend Blizzard's right to control the content of their games, and even (within reason) the manner in which they're played. It does seem that the copyright thing is part of the "everything but the kitchen sink" approach to this lawsuit, and IANAL, but I wouldn't be surprised to see that dropped in the final calculus. Besides, do we really need ANOTHER legal copyright controversy up in this hizzy? I'd hate to see blizzard mentioned in the same breath as the RIAAs of the world.
