Blizzard and Bossland have been engaged in lawsuits for years with Blizzard claiming the cheat makers were infringing on their copyright.
Now, Blizzard has won their legal battle after the German Court of Justice (Bundesgerichtshof) ruled that Bossland engaged in unfair and disruptive practices with their World of Warcraft bots. The bots caused the game’s economy to fall out of balance and provided unfair advantages to those players using the bots.
Blizzard also won the case about copyright infringement with the court ruling in their favour.
A statement from the company reads
We are committed to protecting our game experience for players, as well as our intellectual property, and are very happy with the court’s decision.
We don’t have any further details to provide at this time, other than to say that we will continue to defend all our games in the interest of maintaining a fair-play environment.
Bossland has created cheats, hacks and bots for Blizzard games including World of Warcraft, Diablo, Heroes of the Storm, and Overwatch.
