Abuse of IP law. Shocking!Activision-Blizzard's lawyers didn't have a case, but the threat of big dogs (i.e. over-paid lawyers) is enough to make small guys run away.IP law needs to be changed, and false lawsuits need to have the one's who make false threats lose their license and have to pay the people they threaten.Very disgusted with Blizzard.

Pfftt. Not a problem. Reincorporate and fiddle with the business model a bit. Specifically, try to get some other online game(s) to work with. Try to also commission/partner with another existing online game to provide guaranteed 24/7 access or prorated subscription returns. That way Blizz can't howl all that loud. Also if they have any decent returns from the current work, budget some profit into fixed assets and do some backup work too. From there you can easily spin into reliable hosting. Hire some PhDs (me!, me!, ooh, ooh ooh! *waving arm around*) to engineer an Internet routing overlay so that any site you host can be looked up via duped-DNS if some percentage of the roots go down so that you can start 'guaranteeing' N 9s of reliability... then buy Blizzard with all the phat cash from your insanely popular reliable computing/IAccess company and make the A-B attorneys fetch you your morning coffee, then throw in their faces and fire them (but make sure it isn't too hot, they are attorneys after all).
