Carbon Copy WoW?

What is the WoW Island? Apparently it's a fan-created web-based MMOG that rides on the name and success of the real game. While imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, this one is outright plagiarism. A lot of the content seems to be datamined straight out of WoW, including graphics, items, monsters and so on. I can't see how this could be legal. Blizzard did get a lot of flak from the fan community when they lawyered up and shut down bnetd, the Battle.Net emulator for the RTS games, but I doubt many tears will be shed when this one gets shut down.
