Blizzard: WoW License Changes Unrelated to Operator Change

17173.com, 5/13/09

Responding to recent reports of changes to the end-user licensing agreement (EULA) for its 3D MMORPG World of Warcraft, Blizzard explained that the changes were first made in October 2008, but due to oversight at the time the updated EULA was only visible on WoW's official website but not in the actual game. The changes are actually just the late arrival of the already updated conditions, that are now visible as a result of the recently released patch. Blizzard clarified that the changes have nothing to do with the company's decision to change the game's operator in China.

Editor's Note: Recently it was reported that existing WoW operator in Mainland China, The9 (Nasdaq: NCTY), had updated the WoW EULA to give it the right to suspend, terminate or delete game accounts at its discretion.
