2.) This past week, Blizzard slap some private servers with some lawsuits. Check out the info here.

Remember:

Are private servers illegal? Well, there’s no easy answer.

— If the server is profiting, it is certainly illegal.

— If the server is running stolen or leaked software, it is certainly illegal.

— If the server is distributing client files, it is certainly illegal.
