@Hugh - seriously man, you're just demonstrating your lack of legal knowledge here. I see what you're trying to say, but it's not relevant. What these guys did is produce a 'micro-browser' for a single site, which exclusively took data and graphics from the armory (all of which is Blizzard's intellectual property), and then sold it. Google is a mere search-engine, and it's purpose is what matters. It is not 'selling' the data, nor is it charging for you to open your search box. Google is not a browser, it's not even a piece of software, you cannot make the comparison.If you create something with the sole purpose of using Blizzard's intellectual property, and then sell it, then yes, you're likely to find yourself in hot water. That's all this is, and that's why it got taken down. Feel free to provide statutory evidence or precedent/case-law to prove your point. Otherwise, don't dabble in law if you have no knowledge of it. It's misleading and never ends well.
