    1. 2.3 Show/Hide More MDY Industries, LLC v. Blizzard Entertainment, Inc. - contract/copyright
      Original Creator: mrisch Current Version: mrisch

      A common licensing tactic is to use the threat of copyright infringement to force compliance with license terms. This is how open source software works, for example. This excerpt of the Glider case considers the copyright implications associated with the World of Warcraft EULA, and whether use of a bot constitutes copyright infringement.
