So authors still OWN what they create and can still set the TERMS
and CONDITIONS of it's use.  Amazing!  Shocking!  Good call.

Rather interesting statement from their lawyer if you read between
the lines.  I'm thinking that his clients must have already moved on
to their next get-rich-quick scam.

Oh don't mind me while I dance around corpse, make a mountain out of
a molehill, and declare it a massive victory for Constitutional
principles.  *kof* In any event I'm certain it will continue to be
posted on slashdot.com and other silly sites that EULAs are invalid
and untested.

Congratulations to Mythic.  And here's hoping that Blizzard has a
similar victory over the parasites and pirates.
