Violated Intellectual Property rights? Is Blizzard claiming this is like the Glider case? That the servers are "supposed" to go down? :pHonestly, this is just insurance. If the server goes down, you get compensated. The only information the site needs to know is if the server is up/down; and Blizzard provides that for public access. The other thing the site needs to know is if you have a character on that server. Which I suppose could create some issues (ie. how do you verify you have a character)? But there are legit ways they could do it. (ie. send a verification code to you in-game) At the end of the day, it's Blizzard game I suppose, so they can shut anything down that involves their game. (*cough* add-ons) But all this really seems to be is overzealous lawyers, that just get paid to keep as much options on Blizzard's table as possible. It's funny, cause Blizzard shuts them down; but I see gold sellers advertising on a lot of popular wow sites :/If anything. I suspect Blizzard just didn't like the idea a company was advertising how often the servers were down :p

I don't understand this theory for Blizzards actions.Surely a company that "loses" out whenever servers go down suggests a fairly stable server status surely?If blizzard had really unreliable servers(if you think this patch is unreliable you've seen nothing) companies like this probably couldn't exist?To me it'd be a positive advertisement for them?
