Blizzard Is Suing Bossland Cheat Maker…Again

Overwatch 2016-05-06 05-43-23-72

Blizzard has filed suit against World of Warcraft bot maker and Diablo gold farmer Bossland GmbH at a federal court in California. In addition to its antics in World of Warcraft and Diablo, German-based Bossland also sells cheats for other Blizzard titles including Heroes of the Storm.

The lawsuit is quite standard for companies going up against cheat developers, utilizing copyright infringement, unfair competition, and DMCA allegations of tampering with the game’s DRM. The lawsuit also alleges that the cheat makers are causing damage to Blizzard’s business by harming their goodwill and reputation with customers forced to deal with cheaters.

“Defendants not only know that their conduct is unlawful, but they engage in that conduct with the deliberate intent to harm Blizzard and its business. Blizzard is entitled to monetary damages, injunctive and other equitable relief, and punitive damages against Defendants.”

Blizzard is claiming jurisdiction in the United States as Bossland does business in the country. The game developer previously sued Bossland in German court over Diablo III gold farming and was forced to withdraw their case.
