Edit--My stance on the suing is indifferent. I do believe the leak was a positive thing overall for the game. If they want to prosecute though, they have every right to. I have no problem with that, especially considering they're not suing for $5,000,000 in damages or some stupid shit like that.

It's a very good point. I will happily concede that it was indeed a crime (though I'd not really go so far as to call it a felony, like some have done.)

Whether it qualifies as theft, I dunno. At the least it's "haxxoring."

And if the only thing they're asking for is 5 grand, then eh.

But all in all, I'll still happily argue that the leak has done them far more good than bad. Though some people seem to not understand that positive word of mouth is a great thing in gaming, I've seen quite a few people go from "it's going to suck, they'll fuck it up, it'll be Invisible War all over again," to "OMG I played the leak and it's awesome! I'm definitely getting this."
