Blizzard Responds To Pirate Server Shutdown Controversy By Explaining How Copyright Works

Blizzard Responds To Pirate Server Shutdown Controversy By Explaining How Copyright Works

Earlier this month, Blizzard issued a cease and desist to operators of a pirate “vanilla” World of Warcraft server called Nostalrius. The group (and its community) argued that they should have a right to play how they want, and the furor may even have been the cause of an aggressive DDOS attack that took down all Blizzard games shortly thereafter.

Copyright in the United States is a tricky thing. It offers protection to people who create original content, guards against knock-offs that might cause brand confusion, and ultimately serves as a way to ensure that someone who creates gets to monetize their work. But that comes at a cost.

It is up to every copyright holder and intellectual property owner to guard their walls. The government hands you a shield by granting trademark and copyright protection, but you must pick it up. If you do not hoist it and in turn willingly let your property be assailed, you may be forfeiting your right to defend it later.

Get A First Look At McFarlane's New Assassin's Creed III Connor Figure

It may have been a few years since Assassin's Creed III hit PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Wii U, and PC, but artists and toy manufacturers are far from finished paying tribute to the game's protagonist Connor. Iconic company McFarlane Toys is readying its latest crack at Connor with a new 7-inch figure that features the 18th century assassin with his iconic assassin robe and beloved bow and arrow.

The figure was sculpted using 3D models straight from Assassin's Creed III to ensure the most accurate portrayal of Connor possible. The figure also includes a base for easy display.

Connor is figure number 5 in the McFarlane Color Tops Red Wave line. Other figures featured in this line include various characters from AMC's The Walking Dead and Fear the Walking Dead. If you're looking forward to getting your own miniature Connor, you can look forward to picking this figure up this summer for $19.99.
