* Blizzard off the deep end?

PC Games/Hardware/Microsoft
Blizzard have filed an interesting legal brief, claiming that accessing the copy of World of Warcraft in your own RAM while running the game compromises their "copyright."

Interestingly, the EFF has previously branded Blizzard's "Warden" software - the stuff they use to try to prevent external programs from touching WoW - as "spyware."

It's just going to get worse before it gets better... but Blizzard are obviously doing what they have to do. Too many games (Asheron's Call, FFXI to name just two) have been destroyed by botters.
