There are probably reasons why blizz lawyers decided to go with the copyright infringement argument. One reason I would guess at is, there is probably more laws with backbone as far as penalties and fines in place to deal with copyright infringement. If blizz went with “you broke our TOS agreement” argument alone there might not be a way to make the charges stick. I know the point of this article is can a violation of a TOS agreement be a copy write issue? That being said this glider case is pretty unique and as a whole had a very negative impact on blizzard. Will this pave the way for other companies to sue people for TOS violations? Maybe, I doubt it. I think the blizz lawyers have just utilized what they can in place for laws. Will it affect the 99% rest of us very unlikely.
