Blizzard Entertainment filed suit against 10 unnamed StarCraft 2 hackers this week, alleging that their actions cause "serious harm to the value" of the game.
Blizzard believes that the 10 defendants distribute, develop or sell the unauthorized software, are "well aware" of Blizzard's prohibitions and cause "immediate, massive and irreparable" harm by infringing on copyright, contributing to copyright infringement and failing to "supervise and control" the hacks and their distribution. For trafficking in circumvention devices, breaching the ToS and EULA contracts and intentionally interfering with those contractual relations, Blizzard is asking the court to require the defendants to shut down the hacks and associated domains, deliver copies of the software and all accounts of sales to Blizzard and provide monetary compensation.
Blizzard is also demanding a jury trial.
