Since bnetd.org did not interact with Battle.net, the defendants contended that their purchase of Blizzard games meant that their use, through an alternate server, of the Battle.net "mode" contained was authorized.
Tim Jung and others collaborated to develop an open-source software project named 'bnetd' which interoperated with the Blizzard games and offered online gaming functionality similar to the Battle.net service.
Blizzard sued Jung and other parties involved with the bnetd project, claiming inter alia that they had infringed Blizzard trademarks and copyrights, breached the End User Licence Agreements ('EULA') under which the games were published, breached the Battle.net terms of use ('TOU'), and that bnetd was a circumvention device.
In the consent decree, the defendants agreed that they had incorporated copyrighted materials created by Blizzard into the bnetd software without authorisation.
(176) The Court also held that because bnetd circumvented the Battle.net secret handshake, it was a circumvention device within the meaning of the DMCA and that the reverse engineering exception in the DMCA did not apply.
