They won at least one million dollars, Ambler. I doubt the case cost even that. :P


Only if the developers break the conditions of the court ruling.

That link of the court finding is epic!
They pwned them for copyright infringment, Circumvention of Technological Measures Under theDigital Millennium Copyright Act, Trademark Infringement, Computer Fraud and Abuse and Tortious Interference with Contract.

Makes you wonder what any of the other remaining bots talking their big game are gonna do?
After seeing the big 2 go, one of them utterly raped by court order on like every possible angle Jagex could get them with AND forced to put loads of foolish kids in the shit with the details hand over; they must be thinking twice about their continued efforts! Especially since both the two who caved said they saw the error in what they did and how it damaged Jagex.

Jagex should be very careful when taking action against people who used the botting software. I never used the client, but I'm sure plenty of people at least tried it out, had a second opinion on botting, and haven't substantially used it to improve their character. If they do end up banning accounts/IPs, they would lose a lot of loyal, paying members.

But they will have to pay for Jagex side of the legal fees plus any damages. I bet its easily wiped out any profit they ever made and probably more.

So do Jagex have to pay them back for all the memberships they bought for these bots?

As for giving them the information about all those who wrote scripts or helped develop iBot at any point, I think that was a low-blow by the bot developers to those who aided the most into putting money in their pockets. The clients were nothing without the scripts. I doubt they should be at all worried though.

There is significant money changing hands, though... enough to justify a lien on the Snellman’s house.

Defendants’ Second Payment to Jagex shall be secured by a lien on Defendants’ home located at 3012 Bellwind Circle, Rockledge, Florida 32955. The lien shall be for 200% of the amount of the Second Payment in order to cover any attorneys’ fees or costs incurred by Jagex in the event that it needs to execute on the lien due to non-payment by Defendants.


When you place a lien on real estate, you aren’t talking about chump change.

It's hard a low blow by the bot developers the court ordered them to do that.

Besides if the rsbot thing is anything to go by theyll offer an amnesty and maybe dole out some rollbacks, the only ones with any major concerned should be the re-sellers and the script devs as Jagex will likely take a less forgiving view on them and, as this shows, can take them to court and win.

That's the house mentioned in the court documents so I'd guess that's the house that the Snellman bros. bought with the money illegally earned from the bot.

Looks like they own a very nice house. I was nosey too, Mercifull. :P One website listed it at $866K in November 2011.

Bows, the Snellman's house.

I might consider going to that RuneFest. There's nothing I love more than sweet irony.
