had been brought by players against Blizzard Entertainment. The lawsuit claims that Blizzard's actions (and inactions) were forcing players to purchase physical authenticators for Battle.net. Today we've heard the response from the studio, which is an unsurprising dismissal of the accusations.
Blizzard released a statement that began as follows: "This suit is without merit and filled with patently false information, and we will vigorously defend ourselves through the appropriate legal channels."
The studio went on to address the concerns brought up by the lawsuit and defend its actions during the past summer's Battle.net security breach. Blizzard said that the onus to secure one's computer is on the operator, which is why the company "strongly encourages" the use of authenticators.
