...it's worth noting that the EUCD also makes mod chipping for the purposes of playing import games or homebrew software illegal...

I get sick of hearing my co-workers chatting about their modded X-boxes. Someone was talking about Fable and saying how they liked it "alright" but it wasn't the greatest... in a conversation with two or three others who were also playing Fable. I chimed in and said basically that I liked it enough to try to get my $50 worth of gameplay, blah blah blah.
The response was, "You paid for it??" Oh, I guess, when you get a modded X-box, then you can just pass a copy of a game around, and everybody can have it. How nice. So among the four co-workers in that particular conversation, only one of us had paid for the game. Those guys play with a number of other co-workers who also have modded X-boxes, and so it's safe to bet that most of them had tried Fable for free too. I can't see at all how piracy really puts a dent in a big company's profits. [/sarcasm]
So yeah, I like it when people doing outlandish and stupid things like this clown in the article go down.
