Fight for your right to Mod

This is a very good and important court ruling and in truth I’m surprised it was the, up until now, very convervative Australian high court that did it.

if I buy a car and i respray it and put mag wheels on it i dont breach the car makers copyright so why should it be different with game moding or console moding…? It strikes me that the fundemental issue here is the the long ago estblished notion of the fact that the user doesnt BUY or OWN software they BUY a liscence to use it… One of the greatest cons inflicted upon the populous in the modern era…
