That leaves you responsible only for the default copyright terms.

Of course, it would cost you plenty to actually get such a ruling IF you could find a court that doesn't just go through the motions.

The default terms for copyright are: You can't copy my shit without my permission. If you agree to the EULA, the vendor relaxes those terms to let you copy your game into computer memory and 'play' it.

After 9/11 all of the US government agencies pointed at each other and said 'we could have stopped it if we had that piece of info over there' while pointing at all the other agencies.

So the solution was to put everything on a giant intranet so everyone could see everything.

Not such a good idea, really.
