Blizzard and MDY have filed their “replies” (the last round of briefing to the court) in the lawsuit over MDY’s popular World of Warcraft automation program, MMO Glider. Perhaps sparked by the recent amicus brief filed by Public Knowledge, the replies focus largely on the copyright claims in this case.
Here are the documents:
- Blizzard’s Reply Supporting its Motion for Summary Judgment (.pdf)
- MDY’s Reply Supporting its Motion for Summary Judgment (.pdf)
Blizzard also filed a few new exhibits:

It is notoriously difficult to predict how long a court will take to rule on motions for summary judgment; a few very speedy courts rule within five or six weeks, but others take much longer. If the court takes oral argument on the motions (which MDY requested) that could extend the time as well.
