Okay, Not Free Money After All


Fansite Diablo 3 has been bought by Blizzard:

Well, there’s no point in beating around the bush any longer, so let’s get right down to it. A few months ago we were contacted by Blizzard in regards to the Diablo3.com domain name. While they appreciate all the work that’s been put into running this big Diablo fan community over the years, they still want the domain name. Hmm, I wonder why? Now before you get all up in arms about it, allow me to explain a few things.

I'm not sure I approve of that kind of domain-name squatting. Big fans, eh? All too happy to force the company you love to give you a big cheque? No money changed hands, apparently. Hmm. Maybe it's all good... Feeling a bit sceptical this morning.
