Sounds like they're just making the rounds now, I'm thinking we are going to be seeing a lot more of these C&D coming up. Obviously the legal department has been unleashed.On the bright side, speaking of non-combat pets, the patch included my http://www.wowhead.com/?spell=63318

Why are all the good WoW related blogs or bloggers closing up shop suddenly?
Wow, really :/ I hate to say it, but this is a warning sign that Blizzard is about to start heading downhill among its customers. I have never known a company to persue bad PR policies, that wasn't on its way down. And that's all this really is BAD PR. Come on now, you really think Blizzard was losing that much money and/or they are going to make much money by shutting down WARCRAFTPETS.COM. Might as well take a gun and shoot youself in the foot; cause you have not accomplished anything except piss off your own fans. And like I said, I have never known a company on its way up to do this kind of thing. You're just too worried about alienating your customers (rocking the boat) to risk something dumb like that. But once they reach a plateu, then they become much more defensive, like rabid dogs defending their turf. Because they don't have anything else. How the mighty have fallen :/ I swear, you better delay the release of Icecrown Citadel; cause I predict there will be a sharp decline in membership after that.

The sad thing is Blizzard is picking on those whom they have a symbiotic relationship with. The are going to wake up one morning angry and confused when the big bad hippo that is Blizzard has chased away all the oxpecker birds that used to help keep it clean.

"Why are all the good WoW related blogs or bloggers closing up shop suddenly?"To be clear, WarcraftPets is NOT shutting down; Breanni is closing the CafePress store down that had WarcraftPets merch for sale.The headline could be clearer about that.

They target larger sites first to scare the smaller sites. This is not bad PR. If you redraw Micky Mouse and slap it on a mug and sell it for $15 you will surely see a lawsuit come your way.Plus it's not like these sites will die. They just need to find other means of financial support. Car wash anyone? The free ride is over for many ,but who cares. Get a real job.

Blizzard would clearly rather spend time and money American entrepreneurs making a small buck (which likely pays for the server's hosting their sites, sites which Blizz loves and highlights) and spend the same time and money to make their promotions, contests etc. available to Canada, Latin America, Europe, etc ... I mean, they're adding POLISH language support. Seriously? Who speaks Polish, and doesn't also speak another language? That Uni-lingual population vs everyone shafted by "USA" only stuff. Seriously.
