The Glider bot plays World of Warcraft for you, but Blizzard frown on this, saying that this voids the license agreement — you don't own the game, you only have a licence to use it, and bots like Glider invalidate the license. The EFF a good summary of the case as well and the case is due to be resumed on Monday.
