Blizzard vs. BnetD Decision

The Electronic Frontier Foundation (thanks Mike Martinez and Slashdot) has word on a decision in the DMCA lawsuit between Blizzard and the makers of the BnetD alternative to the Battle.Net service. According to the interpretation of this: "A clickthrough EULA isn't unconscionable (and thus enforceable); Fair Use rights can be waived in a EULA; First Sale rights (!) can be waived in a EULA; The DMCA's interoperability provisions are not a defense." Both the /. article and the EFF article have further opinions on what this means going forward, and word is the EFF is planning an appeal.

Sony also insists that your copy of SWG is not transferable to another person. Nice huh?
