Greetings Buddies, there was no update for a long time, so let me update you a bit then. Germany As you might know, or might not know, two cases where at trial at the Federal Court of Justice of Germany, the highest german court. One case was decided prety fast, on the same day. There the judges have cut a judgement, the way, that only if three things are fulfilled, only then there is a copyright infringement. The sole watching of a video is not a copyright infingement. Now imagine - it actually was in this case - until the Federal Court of Justice of Germany removed the "or" before the "and" watching on the monitor. As a result, you would say... WHAT?!?! Yes, anyway, it something to clear out. The much more important case, will be decided January 12th 2017, so the court said. How that one goes, one can only speculate. So lets wait and see. It is the Honorbuddy case. Pending, we have two more pending cases at the Federal Court of Justice of Germany, it will take some time until the court decides wheither they are worth to be reviewed. One decision was even moved from 8th December 2016 to 27th April 2017. Let me speculate here, i believe it is because the court has to first decide the Honorbuddy case until 12th January, but with the decision there is not always the whole written judgement, this one can also take weeks or months. And im my opinion, depending on the Honorbuddy case, the court will continue to bring the remaining cases on the line. As far there are two pending ones and at least two more might get to the court over then next few years. United States of America Congratulations to your new president. Some might have notices, that Blizzard is trying to sue us in the US - asking for a jury trial - and that the case is still pending. There is not much to say there at this moment. Kotaku was so free to publish the whole lawsuit here: https://torrentfreak.com/images/blizzard-bossland.pdf United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland Her Majesty's High Court of Justice in England has received two lawsuits from Blizzard. As things work much faster in the UK, we expect a first meeting at the High Court somewhen in January 2017. The first case is a temporary injunction against Watchover Tyrant, the second case is a lawsuit vs any bots we created that automate gameplay in Blizzard games. Such an escalation ? Why? I believe it did not go well with Blizzard and their expectations of the Federal Court of Justice of Germany. On the other side, as long as there is no Brexit, it might be interesting to see if both countries highest courts have a scimilar opinion on copyright infringement, breach of contract and unfair competition. Otherwise, it would be a good call to ask the European Court of Justice, that would clarify things in the whole European Union at once. On the bright side, i was never yet in London, i hope January is warm and dry. As an ending word, sorry at you all Buddies for your temporary loss. We hope you will still continue pay World of Warcraft and pay your monthly WOW subs!
