Yes, satire is pretty obviously part of parody.You're kind of missing my point. Large corporations can and do sue others over works of parody when they feel the parody is in someway harmful to them. Even though the individual may have the law on their side,they often to do not have either the funds or time that a corporation can bring to bare in terms of fighting a legal case and so instead are simply forced to comply with the corporation's wishes.Again, I very highly doubt you'll see a move like this from Blizzard over a comic book parody. If we do see Blizzard do something like this one day, I'd kinda imagine it would be over something like say the live action WoW pornography that one company have been making. Although even there I suspect Blizzard are of the opinion that people making live action porn out of WoW is just too hilarious a concept to be offended by.
