Early today (9:30am EST/New York/-5GMT) attempting to launch Diablo III keeps you in a loop saying you will begin to download a patch and the game client restarts but says game up-to-date.
The patch is not yet on the servers for download if this behavior is happening. Sit tight, and try again every 20 minutes until the patch files are available. These are the patch notes posted yesterday at the official forums.
Important: Please note that you will not be prompted to download patch 1.0.2c until the patch is live in your home region. If you are logging in from a European or Asian client, you will need to wait for this patch to release in that region before it can be installed. Additionally, if your home region is the Americas, you will be unable to log into Europe or Asia using Global Play after patch 1.0.2c is live until those regions have also patched.
For reference, here are the scheduled maintenance times for each region:
The Americas: 5:00 a.m. PDT to 11:00 a.m. PDT
Asia: 1:00 p.m. PDT to 4:00 p.m. PDT
Europe: 6:00 p.m. PDT to 12:00 a.m. PDT
Please note that these times are subject to change. For time zone assistance, please visit: http://everytimezone.com
