Here's some elementary contract law for you, Nick: only parties to an agreement can be bound by it. If this blog is receiving alpha information and publishing it, that means that the person sending it has breached their non-disclosure agreement and the general game terms of service, not the blog, unless one or more of the bloggers is also in the alpha. The NDA and TOS cannot forbid a third party to report news. The takedown was done to keep on good terms with Blizz' PR department, and nothing more.That said, it was particularly spineless to comply.

While it's true, I think, that we are within our first amendment protection to post the material, people need to look at the bigger picture.Why would we want to be on bad terms with Blizzard? Can't we serve you, the public / readership, better by maintaining a good relationship with Blizzard, there by giving us more access to them and their products? Which will be better, a WotLK talent tree we will all see in three months or tons of interviews and coverage at Blizzcon?We choose the later. Feel free to disagree, however.

@Adam:Obviously Blizzard doesn't care enough about you guys to include you on the first big media day for WotLK so I don't see why you need to be in their good graces. They already snubbed you all once, plus, you aren't serving your reader. Especially in later articles you guys say, "We won't post it, but we'll link to it". Lame.
