Blizzard: You can't write books about WoW

Molly Wood Former Executive Editor
Molly Wood was an executive editor at CNET, author of the Molly Rants blog, and host of the tech show, Always On. When she's not enraging fanboys of all stripes, she can be found offering tech opinions on CBS and elsewhere, and offering opinions on everything else to anyone who will listen.

Blizzard Entertainment, maker of World of Warcraft, has apparently determined that books written about the game . 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.
