Commentary by Stephen Downes

The problem, of course, is that once one person figures out they can create a bot in a game like World of Warcraft, other people, en masse, decide the same thing. Which is why the technical approach recommended by he author results in an ever-escalating code war that can never be won. That's why people like the owners of World of Warcraft turn to the courts to discourage bot makers. The courts, though, are a poor remedy. bdecause they create law where none existed, and jurisprudence where there ought only be silence.
