Blizzard Entertainment has demanded more than $8.5 million in damages from a company that develops hacks for some of its most popular videogames.
Blizzard asked for the sum in a motion for default judgement against Germany-based Bossland on 13 March.
Germany-based Bossland’s controversial hacks and bots allow players to cheat their way to the top in popular franchises such as World of Warcraft and Overwatch. Blizzard claimed in a complaint filed in the US District Court for the Central District of California that these hacks violate the anti-circumvention provisions of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA).
Bossland, “an archetypal bad actor”, according to Blizzard, told the videogame developer’s counsel that it intended to default rather than defend its actions after failing to convince the court to drop the case due to a lack of jurisdiction.
