Messing with Blizzard's a very, very expensive hobby. Settling a copyright infringement suit against MDY Industries's "Glider" Bot-making World of Warcraft program, the publisher acquired $6 million dollars in damages. Here's the lowdown on the suit via GamePolitics:

"The Glider software is the creation of MDY founder Michael Donnelly who is thought to have sold more than 100,000 copies of the $25 (£14) program...It proved popular with many WoW players as it helped them automate the many repetitive tasks, such as killing monsters and scavenging loot, required to turn low level characters into more powerful ones..."

Both parties are due back in court in January 2009 to settle the rest of the dirt. Blizzard's next WoW expansion arrives this November 13 with the Wrath of The Lich King for PC and Macintosh platforms. Hey, maybe that $6 million can help make up for World of Warcraft's cost so far....eh?
