Disappointed that this wasn't a discussion of derivative works and whether or not Blizzard's policies are actually enforceable under current copyright law. But as usual, Lawbringer is nothing but a mouthpiece for Blizzard's policy lawyers.

Firstly, the author didn't really seem to be praising Blizzard's policies, nor did he seem against them. He merely stated them for what they are and made some educated guesses about Blizzard's future stance on the mater.Second, WoW is Blizzard's intellectual property, meaning that they can set what ever rules and restrictions they want for access to their service. By checking the "I agree" button come patch times and first installation, you are essentially signing a legal document stating that you will comply with their wishes. You can choose to to check "I disagree," but in so doing, you forfeit your right to use their product. And this includes use of the API that third party add-on makers need. Whine all you want, but the law is on Blizzard's side.
