Re: Diablo 3 Beta Somewhat Cracked The same reason they crack any other game? So you admit that this is illegal then? If their intentions are to provide people with a free game, that would make this an illegal undertaking, no? I think the legal vs illegal verdict balances on the reasoning behind them cracking this game. If it is to provide a demo to the people and nothing more (although without Blizzard's express permission, could still be grounds for a lawsuit) I don't see anything wrong with it, but if it's to provide people with a working game by the release then it obviously isn't legal, nor right. Though, the laws in China (if it is being carried out there) could be different then the laws in the United States about reproducing, cracking, etc. If they are, they could pursue people that live in the United States that are downloading and using this game.
