My point wasn't that "lolsalot" would be a copyrighted phrase, merely that such a name is in violation of the EULA. I agree that such names are annoying, however I don't think that using such a name should be treated as copyright infringement. Nobody can agree that this ruling is for the best. It makes it possible for blizzard to sue any customer they like, for no reason at all, and precident will be set to rule in Blizzards favour. I'm not saying this is likely to happen, I am saying it would now be possible and legal.1. Blizzard are broke2. I am chatting happily3. Blizzard, in their sole and absolute discretion deem my comments offensive (they decide what is offensive, and therefor they decide if I break TOS and thus EULA)4. Since Blizz decided I broke TOS, they sue me for copyright infringment.5. Precident is already set, and so the judge rules in Blizzards favour.6. I now owe blizzard thousands of dollars, simply because they decided they wanted some extra cash.....
