I won't go too much further into this except to beg you to reconsider your argument. It's bad for video games overall because if what you argue is upheld, then all the gaming companies will code their games without any security at all. Why should they?
I mean, they can make more money later on suing, and keep a large portion of the community happy at one point or another, while generating all kinds of free press in the process.
Because the way Bliz does security these days is not anywhere near as strong as it should be.
To follow your analogy, it was as if Bliz had the front door wide open with a giant neon sign saying, "NO SECURITY, NO DOG, VALUABLE CHEDDAR INSIDE." And then they blame the mice for dashing in and dining out on it...
No I think there is a happy medium and Bliz simply isn't living up to the requirements of a gaming company.
They don't sue people who get caught duping items in wow. Why are they really suing this company? Something else is going on.
