Wow.Someone's trying to make their money today eh Eliah? I see you've reverted back to the we're gonna share wrath info again, until Blizzard says no (then I'll totally take it down, and then try to chum up to everyone). You wanker.

Hi Blurred! Our legal department is still mulling it over, but at the moment we've settled on a policy of link it, discuss it, just don't host it ourselves. Hence the YouTube embed, instead of posting a link to the MP3.

Blurred why do you care

Well... assuming the reason WoWInsider took down the earlier information was to keep on good terms with Blizzard, why would anyone consider this form of linking to leaks to be any better? Leaks are leaks; if you're going to post them and forfeit your relationship with the company, then do it. If you're attempting to keep in Blizzard's good graces, I really, really doubt articles like this are viewed in a better light than the previous ones that had their information removed.

Sorry Eliah, I know we're partners and everything, but you guys are really being dicks about this. You need to stop pussy-footing around and choose where you actually want to stand on this issue. Fuck legalities, this is about either doing as Blizzard ask, or not doing as they ask, and living with the consequences of either. Quit sitting on the fence and choose. It's going to bite you in the ass either way, so man up and ride it out. We've made our call, and we're sticking with it. It's about time you made yours, and don't let a couple of angry blog commentators sway your judgment.

"Fuck legalities, this is about either doing as Blizzard ask, or not doing as they ask"We did what they asked. They asked us to take down the unreleased information we were hosting, and we did. They never asked us to not link to unreleased information, or to not talk about it. So we're doing that.

You really think they make a distinction? You're just arguing semantics. Linking it is just as bad. If you were asked not to put porn on your page and you hotlinked a streaming video with porn on it, do you think people would just let it slide? It's the same thing.What's worse, is the craven cowardice on display. You won't even accept responsibility for doing it. Squirm all you want, but I have the feeling you've just burned more bridges than you realize. Take it from me and my personal experience, getting on the wrong side of Blizzard, is a bad idea.
