World of Warcraft creator Blizzard has won $6m (£3.36m) in damages from the makers of a software ‘bot’.
The damages award comes after Blizzard won the first round of its legal battle against MDY Industries in July 2008.
Blizzard embarked on the case against MDY claiming that the World of Warcraft Glider software produced by the small company infringed its copyright.
The Glider software lets Warcraft players automate many of the repetitive steps the game involves.
