Newsbrief: After two years of legal battling, a company that provides exploitative bot capabilities for Blizzard's World of Warcraft MMO has been forced to cease operations, and pay Blizzard $7 million in damages.

Blizzard initially filed a lawsuit against Ceiling Fan Software back in 2011. The company provides a method for WoW players to keep playing the game even when they are away from their computer, and essentially exploit the game's reward system.

On the company's website, Ceiling Fan co-founder Josh Becker explained that the ruling from the U.S. District Court in California last week means that the company can no longer offer the botting products, and that it has been forced to shut down.
