 Modding and the Clash with Law

I admire modders. They take what everyone else has and turn it into their own thing. A work of art in most cases. (No pun intended :) - Noel)

"And modding has already tumbled head-on into a legal snake pit. This is entirely the doing of large entertainment and media companies, although Justice Department employees without enough work on their hands sometimes take up the cause even more zealously. It will be a big paradigm culture shift when major actors look at modding as a social and business issue instead of a legal one. This article tries to explain why that's so important and what its consequences may be."
