Has anyone considered that add-ons would be considered copywrite infringement under this decision? They do, afterall manipulate "the "non-literal" elements (the gameplay itself)".This would leave the door open to Blizzard requiring license fees be paid by developers. At the very least it could mean a new License Agreement for add-on developers. It could also lead to Blizzard taking code from the add-ons and not giving the author the proper recognition or royalties.In general, I don't have a problem with the decision against Glider. It's intent is to circumvent the intention and use of game play. However, I do have a problem of copywrite being interpreted in such a broad way.
