Ninth Circuit Rules on License Conditions versus Contract Covenants in Dispute over World of Warcraft Bots – MDY v. Blizzard, Part I

3 01 2011

The dispute between MDY and Blizzard raises a multiplicity of interesting issues under copyright law and the DMCA, issues on which the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit ruled last month in MDY Industries, LLC v. Blizzard Entertainment, Inc. (9th Cir. Dec. 14, 2010). The ruling was largely, although not completely, favorable to Blizzard, but either way it is an important ruling for content and software licensors who seek to control their use of their copyrighted works.
