Yesterday, World of Warcraft (WoW) player Zhou Xuhui won his lawsuit against online game developer and operator The9 (Nasdaq: NCTY). Zhou was suing The9 for deleting his account after it was found he was using an exploit to cheat in the game. The Shanghai Pudong District People's Court ordered The9 to restore Zhou's online account, return his virtual equipment, and pay for all court fees.
