create your own battle.net network

Several years ago, there was a tool called bnetd that let you create your own battle.net network. They were sued by Blizzard, however, on the basis that bnetd didn't perform the additional CD key checks that the real battle.net did (not that it could; battle.net uses it's own validation techniques above and beyond those used by the game) and thus constituted a copy protection circumvention tool under the DMCA.

Apparently, though, developers from other countries have taken up the development of bnetd and renamed the project. You can find more info here:
