oh and if i wanted to mod my console so i can play legit backups of 50 and 60 dollar games it should be my right.
YEAH! Screw Healthcare, let's march on Washington demanding our rights as gamers!!
Personally, I find Microsoft to be a very lenient company in terms of their policies. If you think Microsoft is bad, you would blow a fuse knowing Sony has tried making customer resale of used PS3/PSP games illegal, claiming once you bought a game, it's yours with no option for resale. That would mean no used games on ebay, gamestop, craigslist, etc..
I recall when Team Blackbolt was designing the MC360 skin for XBMC. Microsoft contacted them and just wanted to ensure they weren't using ripped graphics of their copyrighted content. Team Blackbolt showed them the original textures, and Microsoft gave them their blessing to continue. Other companies would have probably shut them down, regardless.
