What about the body's flora and immune system? Today, we have to get all sorts of shots before visiting certain foreign countries. Could it be that the future version of one's own country would be just as foreign in terms of whatever pathogens are common? Could the newly-revived body be ill-equipped to face this?

Are you really going to be THAT guy who takes a potentially ambiguous PARAPHRASING and then uses it to derail the larger point? Blizzard didn't even say this "contradiction". The article paraphrased it as such.

Blizzard said this "Defendants’ sale and distribution of the Bossland Hacks in the United States has caused Blizzard to lose millions or tens of millions of dollars in revenue, and to suffer irreparable damage to its goodwill and reputation."

It's fine to disagree with the larger point, but there's no need to start a side-show based on hearsay.

If you still need to nitpick, OK

"These bots and cheats also cause millions of dollars in lost sales, as they ruin the games for many legitimate players. "

There's no contradiction. They never said that the lost sales were from legitimate players. They just say that the game is ruined for legitimate players, and this results in lost sales.

If a brand of rice has been known to kill people because of listeria, this will result in lost sales. See? No contradiction.
