Isn't what X1 is doing illegal? I mean isn't there something called a copywright protecting mods?

Here we go again...

I don't know if what X1 is doing is illegal; I'm not a lawyer. It is certainly viewed as unethical, if they include mods without the mod designer's permission. Is copying a mod the same thing? Unless a designer registers their mod with some form of copyright, then is it copyright infringement? Can you copyright a mod which is based on a game that is itself copyrighted? The questions can pile up pretty quickly.
