StarCraft 2 Hack Programmers Sued

Recommended Posts

What gets me is they continued with these projects after FH was shut down. If that wasn't enough of a signal right there I don't know what is.

 

Perma and the rest of them got nothing to worry about as long as the Canada government protect them. However, nano351 was gonna get screwed if he didn't. All you gotta do is hide your online identity.

LOL. I was actually going to post a question about whether it was okay to upload hacks to your site, and if a company could take action against you for distributing a non-profit hack to the public.

I wonder how all this is going to turn out. It would be pretty said if perma and zynaster ended up like that woman who got fined 1.9 million for downloading 24 songs.

 

What i find even more sad in all this is that some of you assholes are acting like "they had it coming". This show of sadistic glee at the possible imprisonment of others appalls me. They hacked on video games, they were not computer terrorists.

 

Now however they will probably be treated as if they were.

I was about to say, because if she got pwned by using Limewire, that sucks. Everyone I know pretty much uses Limewire.

see... That's the typical childish behavior that used to piss me off in jail.

 

I don't wish for them to go to jail. But they wont, they are merely being sued.

 

But if you do the crime, don't fucking cry when you are punished.

 

 

You say they were only hacking a game.. Well, it was in direct violation of the end user agreement. Not to mention, hackers drive legit players away.

 

I don't wish for anything bad on them. But I can almost guarantee they are gonna be fucked with about a million dollar debt.

Bleh Blizzard needs to take a chill pill. the fact their suing for this kind of annoys me. Just the fact it's mostly maphacks that are out. Maphacks... People can still get pwned if they use a maphack. If they found much larger exploits then I would understand, just tell them to stop making hacks and close off the download section.

I see what your point is. The issue here is that Blizzard is trying to make a statement, so they can scare off people from making more extensive programs/hacks. To make an example out of them. Just like the music industry tried to do with those handful of people they sued.

 

It's just like anything else. If you make something that takes a lot of time, effort, and funds to produce, you are going to try and protect it. They are doing what anyone else would do.

Yeah, I guess we're just used to SC1, D2, and W3 where they never gave a [serious] shit what we did. Taking it a bit personally, I guess. X_X

Someone got sued for hacking World of Warcraft. Blizzard now know what they can pull, so now every game they make & release it is gonna have some type of ToU. Meaning they can give you a friendly C&D.

Ha, well we all know the dangers of using hacks. Just we have seemed to have forgotten about them. Especially during the brood war days.

Lol. I had to laugh when I read this. I mentioned just how screwed people where in this post right here, but everyone thinks they are invincible, and didn't believe me. Lol! rofl

 

Do also realize that whether or not those people being sued either win/loose the court-battles, they will still pay a huge price. The stress degrades your working ability, the time in courts either cuts into personal time or work time, and there are the costs of lawyers and court-fees too. Even if you win the court-battle, you have lost.

 

As always, none of my advice is not meant to replace that of an attorney's. Be sure to consult with an attorney for the best course of action.

Yeah, WoWGlider. But that's the point, we want them to care about WoW not us. :X
