With something likes TOS violations, I have a hard time feeling any sympathy for the violators. If you click that you agree, and then violate it, then you need to suffer the consequences. If the TOS saying botting isn't allowed, then don't be surprised and upset if you get caught and banned, etc.I, like a lot of gamers I imagine, do have concerns about the Digital Millenium Copyright Act and it's future implications and uses. But I guess this case has proven some good can come from it?

I agree with them being sued and to me, Blizzard should have won. But not for the reason they did.I also have a question: What if the CREATORS of such a product never signed the ToS? They never played World of Warcraft? You don't need an account to find Warden or to get past it.They could have easily used someone else, who DOES play, as a shield. This is the problem for me, it means that legitimate players could get done for apparently breaking "copyright laws" or companies that don't play the game at all (just make a service for it, doesn't have to break ToS though) could get done for breaking "copyright laws" even though they may never have signed in ToS.As far as I'm concerned, if you don't sign any Terms of Service then you cannot be held legally obliged to them. The thing is here, Glider must have signed those ToS.
