    You don't get sued. You get your cd key deactivated so you have to buy a new copy of sc2/wc3/whatever.

    The thing is that it makes no sense for them to fight people for using the content that blizzard made. It's already theirs, so there are no legal issues with that anyway.

    Blizzard does not mind. You can use any of their models in any of their other games as they own it and are not going to sue themselves. They have on multiple occasions for both WC3 and SC2 highlighted Arcade games using resources from other of their games with grate praise. This is why the "no WoW port" rule was removed under my recommendation.
