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.
