PostSubject: Jagex wins court case against RuneScape botters   Mon Jan 23, 2012 6:26 pm

Jagex Games Studio is trumpeting its legal victory against Mark and Eric Snellman. The brothers formed a company called Impulse Software,
which now owes Jagex unspecified damages following a two-year legal
battle concerning macro and botting tools for the company's RuneScape MMO.

The brothers have been muzzled as a result of an injunction, and they are forbidden from discussing Jagex, RuneScape,
or the lawsuit. Additionally, the pair must relinquish "all websites,
domains, source code and customer details to Jagex along with all the
details of all those individuals who have developed scripts for iBOT and
sold or re-sold those scripts," according to a company press release.

Jagex CEO Mark Gerhard vowed to protect RuneScape
users from similar threats in the future. "We have spared no expense
fighting this case, as demonstrated by the seven figure bill this action
has cost, but the point of this and other cases of its kind is that we
will continue bring to justice those who set out to harm the game or our
beloved community. We are delighted to say that we have convincingly
neutered them after a very long battle," he said.

Jagex also says that its "Bot Nuke" operation, which began in October
and includes a suite of code obfuscation tools, has rendered 98% of RuneScape bots obsolete.
