If you want to play within Blizzard's world and be a part of that world, you have to play by their rules. Pretty simple.Sure, you can make the argument that leaks increase interest, but Blizz can counter that leaks disrupt the development process. In either case, Blizzard has likely had some internal talks regarding the pros and cons of looking the other way.Do they have a legal ground to sue people for discussing second or third hand leaked info? No. But can they ban people for discussing it in their world? Definitely.A real-world analog is if you're working for the US State Department. In the outside world you can talk crap about US policy all you want without repercussions, but if you're in the State Department and talk crap about policy, you're fired and there's nothing you can do about it.
