What does this mean for Blizzard? Well, Worlds claims that it owns the patents that allow persistent online worlds that use avatars — you know, worlds like “Everquest II,” “Warhammer Online” and “World of Warcraft.” Secondly, the district the case was to be tried in was notorious for its pro-plaintiff interpretations of copyright law, so the move will likely favor NCSoft.
