As of February 19, 2002 
open-source project at http://www.bnetd.org/
was shut down by Blizzard Entertainment.

(bnetd - open source realization of BattleNet protocol)

Citation from http://www.bnetd.org/:
"This is due to 17 USC Section 512(c)(1)(C) (AKA DMCA, 
supposedly required to be passed by WIPO treaties). 
Blizzard claims bnetd is in violation of 17 USC Section 
1201(b), though we do not agree with their interpretation."

This is terribly bad.

I'm asking: will the Samba project be next ?
