Also, just disable the game when in moving vehicles. I mean, smartphones can detect motion, right? If something is over 5mph, just stop it.
People can run over 5 MPH, you know.
Ok, but none of those things are illegal, and shouldn't be. Claiming DMCA infringement is disingenuous.
Why shouldn't Blizzard have a means to deny people from engaging in this conduct on their servers? Do they not have rights?
*facepalms* Um wut? Saying that suing the people making cheats under the DMCA is dangerous is not saying they can't keep people from cheating on their servers. What kind of stupid guff is that?
It's fascinating to me that this mischaracterization of the meaning of "steal" has hung around for as long as it has.
IS it a mischaractarization, really? I mean, look we're talking about something that in the physical world has a very specific meaning, AND a very specific set of psychological and physical effects that fail to be present when something is digitally copied . I doubt, for example, that you'd have the same sort of horror if someone copied your laptop, and walked away with it, than you would if they actually just outright stole it. I realize I am not the best at articulating my thoughts, so if I am unclear as to what I am tying to say, say so.
This isn't Apple's ridiculous refusal to decrypt data when the owner of the phone had consented.
Wait, I thought it wasn't an outright refusal, but an appeal (not the same thing), and that they had been willing to cooperate until a certain point, namely the way the FBI wanted to handle the decryption...? I'm so lost now.
