Blizzard, creators of World of Warcraft, are suing the maker of "MMO Glider," a  WoW add-on that "plays your World of Warcraft character for you, the way you want it. It grinds, it loots, it skins, it heals, it even farms soul shards... without you."

As you might expect, Blizzard is not happy with the program. In fact, the company said, "Blizzard's designs expectations are frustrated, and resources are allocated unevenly, when bots are introduced into the WoW universe, because bots spend far more time in-game than an ordinary player would and consume resources the entire time," in a court filing.

Michael Donnelly, the creator of MMO Glider, says the game doesn't violate Blizzard's copyright because it doesn't make a copy of the program.

We'll let you know how this one turns out!
