Blizzard awarded $6m in damages from bot creator

Blizzard and MDY Industries, the company responsible for a bot called Glider, have been at each others throat since 2006. Using the bot Glider, World of Warcraft players were able to send a bot out to perform simple tasks that would lead to be rewards, most notably was the ability to have the bot auto engage enemies to grind levels. Blizzard quickly reacted by filing suit against MDY Industries citing the bot was in direct violation of the end user license agreement all players must accept in order to play the game. According to BBC News the courts agree.

After winning one legal battle against MDY Industries in July 2008, Blizzard has been awarded $6 million from the bot developer in its most recent court case. Blizzard, however, may still appeal the ruling as the famed game developer expected a larger stack of money. Further litigation is planned for a January 2009 court date which is expected to resolve other issues stemming from the creation of the product.

The entire quagmire began when MDY Industries filed suit against Blizzard claiming the software giant was strong arming them from selling the $25 application for invalid reason. Wow. Someone at MDY Industries is totally firing its legal team right now.
