Blizzard: You can't write books about WoW

Blizzard: You can't write books about WoW

Blizzard Entertainment, maker of World of Warcraft, has apparently determined that books written about the game violate the DMCA. It ordered eBay to terminate sales of a self-published, unofficial guide to playing the game, claiming that its very existence infringes on its copyright and trademark. Not too surprisingly, the book's author, Brian Kopp, is filing a countersuit, claiming, among other things, that the First Amendment allows people to write books about things. I tend to agree.
