Would Ford prosecute me if I put a go-faster stripe on the side of a Focus?
No. And no one would prosecute you if you covered your Xbox in stickers either. If you modified the engine however then that'd a different story, well not necessary prosecution but maybe you'd become uninsurable which would mean it would be illegal to drive the car.
The reason you're not "allowed" mod consoles is it ALWAYS leads to piracy.
Anywho, this case might mean good news. U.S Courts deemed jailbreaking iPhones fair use, so maybe flashing an xbox could become fair use. Then Microsoft could have no right to banned Xboxes based on the fact their flashed. But only ban based on piracy.This post has been edited by feidhlim1986: Nov 11 2010, 01:12 PM
