This week, we have a short update on the current IGE class action case. The official website for the case reported a motion to stay was filed in order to put the trial on hold while it is resolving the dispute with Blizzard. IGE claims that it is bound by the TOU and EULA agreement with Blizzard. If selling gold for real money is breaking the terms in TOU and EULA then this has to be settled with Blizzard first. The arbitration will probably involve some compensation and will be dealt in privacy.
If the court agrees to put this proceeding to a halt, that would mean a lengthy lawsuit or even an indefinite wait depending on Blizzard's
Affinity Media Holdings, LLC and IGE US shared the same legal identity as stated in the "motion to stay" document, "Defendant, IGE U.S., LLC n/k/a
Affinity Media Holdings, LLC, ('IGE US')". This seems to contradict the recent
statement that IGE was sold.
