    On Tuesday August 9 2011, we went to Berlin and met our lawyers, Dr. Behrmann & H?rtel, who are game law specialists. The meeting went very well. It took several hours to go though the case against us and to get advice as to the strengths and weakness of each point they brought up. Having done so, we are a lot happier now than while we were sitting about waiting for the legal papers to come from Hamburg .
    Unlike in the US, court papers in Germany are not all for publication so we are not attaching a PDF of the 111 page letter Blizzard sent to the Hamburg court.

    Blizzard is suing us on 3 grounds:
    1. Copyright.
    2. Trademark
    3. Inducing Breach of Contract

    Blizzard has tried to tack on a personal liability action. Bossland has been served with papers on this. In German law, if you are a company director and using the company to do something you know to be against the law, you cannot hide behind the company.

    The interesting part will start once Blizzard replies to our defense, as they have then to prove the squishy allegations. So there will not really be any real news until November.

    Also adding some fact, as i strongly assume that they will be asked again here.

    Will Blizzard ever get my details ? No, they did not even ask. But even if, still no.
    Will Honorbuddy stop working ? No, until the case is finally closed. And we do not plan to stop until we reach BGH.

    have blizzard pay us 1 million euro's and we'll fold, imo.

    kick gets 95%, the rest can go to the gang ;)

    This seems like a joke. Blizzards mildly funny claims isn't enough to get on the t.v. show judge judy let alone win a case. Seeing as your not in the US they cany just try and bankrupt you(like every other company in US) So it may take a couple years to get to drop it but i have faith :) GL BUDDYS

    the first time in history, that german law comes to my advantage and the advantage of those i prefer to have it XD

    In Deutschland braucht man nur eine Rechtsschutzversicherung und alles wird gut - fr?her oder sp?ter =)
