$88 million worth of apologies
Blizzard Entertainment has won a lawsuit versus a private server company, Scapegaming, and is looking at a payment of $88 million in damages.

Scapegaming has been running unauthorized servers for Blizzard’s hit game World of Warcraft as well as using a micropayment system that made the company more than $3 million.

With all this in mind, Scapegaming is set to pay $88 million with $85 being for statutory damages. In comparison, only $63,000 goes to cover legal fees.
