To summarise as initially reported by Gamasutra, Blizzard recently sued six people for hacking StarCraft 2 in a bid to run the game on emulated servers. Apparently the group were working to modify the AI to create more of a challenge. The suit has been since dropped, while Blizzard has gone on to tell Gamasutra that they are willing to take legal action as necessary.

The original complaint alleged that the "SC2 Pirate Community is working in concert, largely over the internet, to obtain and access unauthorized or 'cracked' game clients and develop an unauthorized, pirated version of Battle.net, with the goal of enabling members of this community to benefit from Blizzard's development of SC2 without paying for it."
