Submission + - Court Says WoW Users Don't Own Their Game Discs (eff.org)

slcdb writes: On Tuesday December 14th, the US 9th Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that World of Warcraft users do not own their copies of the game discs, in effect robbing them of rights they would otherwise have under US copyright law. Because Blizzard's EULA for World of Warcraft is typical of EULAs used by other companies in the software industry, this decision likely affects virtually all other software sold over the counter. If you think you actually own the copies of software that you purchase at a store or online, think again.
