Blizzard Wins Lawsuit Against Peons4Hire Gold Farmers
Take THAT, you farmers.
Massively reported this weekend that the lawsuit Blizzard filed against the gold farming Peons4Hire has been settled, in Blizz's favor.
In news likely to have repercussions for similar cases, Blizzard has handily won their lawsuit against the gold farming outfit Peons4Hire (aka Game Dollar). The permanent injunction [pdf] they were awarded in the suit's settlement effectively means you'll never see a Peon spam message in your mailbox or chat window ever again. The original suit was filed because of Blizzard's belief [pdf] that this gold spam 'diminished players' game experience and cost Blizzard subscribers, bandwidth, employee time, and ultimately, revenue.'
