It just happened...so never say never my friend.
If you want a new idea, go read an old book.
Originally posted by NewfrWell, that was American base huge corporation vs American based company. I wonder why it took so long. But i really don't see a point in whooping and cheering because, you know, doing the same thing to some China based company (for example, as most gold selling sites lead to that country) is a whole another story. They were in WoW from day one and they are still there and i don't see something going to change in near future.
A journey of a thousand miles starts with the first step. It is a beginning, it sends a signal that the game developers ARE taking this seriously and they are willing to fight to make their game legit.
While it would be infinitely harder to prosecute a foreign case, at least this lays the ground work for the legal system to realize a major issue and allow game companies to say; "we will block all IPs from said country until you get control of your bot companies". That may be a bit drastic, but I could see it happening. I know there are ways to work around IP bans, but at some point that will become to costly as well.
TL:DR - It is a start.
