Jagex Takes on Bot Makers & Wins - MMORPG.com

Jagex has been handed a major legal victory in its battle against bots in RuneScape. A decision has been handed down that compels Mark and Eric Snellman to pay Jagex compensatory damages for their creation of bots to be used in RuneScape.

As a condition of this case the Snellmans have been ordered to give up 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.
 
Gerhard concluded with: “The result of this case against the Snellmans should serve as a serious deterrent for anyone who continues to be involved in developing botting software or scripts or even maintaining or supporting those involved.”
