    League of Legends Wins $10 Million Lawsuit

    Could this be a change for the better which has companies standing up to cheating websites that are for profit like League Sharp?  If you're not sure what I'm talking about check out this Lawsuit that was filed by Riot Games against League Sharp (L#)


    Riot lawsuit by Brian Crecente on Scribd




    TL;DR version of the above is that L# is being said by Riot that they have violated the DMCA (Digital Millennium Copyright Act) by circumventing anti-cheating mechanisms and they weren't happy about it.  


    But there's a fine line here that some people might say "how are cheating bots considered illegal? And how can Riot sue?"  Well the DMCA has some broad terms that can be interpreted to mean whatever you want them to mean, and in the court of law depending on if it's a judge or jury it could be seen as harmful and when accepting money for circumventing measures that Riot Games has in place that's where it can be seen as 'illegal'.  

    Granted I think most could say we don't want the Government running every aspect of our lives and I think Riot Games probably agree with that as well as they did try to handle this dispute without litigation by asking L# to cease their activities.  But it appears that L# didn't want to go that route and even doxxed a Riot Games employee and even threatened them and posted comments on the employees Facebook that were seen as offensive. On top of that they even formed a parent company to hold any copyrights to TRY To avoid legal action, but we now see how well that worked out. 

    So my question to all of you is; do you think this will help developers of games prevent cheating in game and help them crack down on these websites that are 'pay for cheats'?  Is this going to stop cheating forever? No, it's not and I doubt anyone thinks it will but could this serve as a deterrent for anyone doing something similar to L#? Eventhough it doesn't even appear to have an impact on them at this time. 


    Let us know your thoughts about this entire situation that took place between Riot Games (League of Legends) and League Sharp (L#)
