Another point in regards to your post. You have suggested repeatedly that Blizzard is most interested in protecting gamers. First, the Blizzard you worked for no longer exists. Second, any company exists to pursue the interests of its owners. Vivendi's shareholders presumably are most interested in profits, so any care about gamers is secondary.
Also, you never did clarify what definition of "piracy enabler" you are using or how it doesn't cover things like emulators, CD burning applications, Samba, WINE, Linux, ftp, TCP/IP other than it something to do with the way the game industry works.
