All those articles are using scare tactics to generate buzz. I don't think it's anywhere near as big a deal as they're making it out to be. I think it's going to be okay :P

No, we're protected under the mod tools EULA.

Yep, this.

Also TL;DR on those articles. At least the Gizmodo one.

Indeed: as far as Article 13 goes, it stipulates an explicit need for permission to use something that is copyrighted.

The mod tools' EULA granted us that, as do so many other EULAs in other Star Wars games, so as far as mods go, we're fine.

It's more detrimental to fanfics, fanarts, real-world cosplay etc... but modding is safe.

You sure? Non-commercial derivative works tend to have special protections for these kinds of things IIRC.

Certain. There's no provision in Article 13 for any kind of fair use.

Not rejected, exactly... it's being sent to the EU Parliament for debate, where MEPs can table much-needed amendments to it.

Looks like they delayed the doom clock to September 10th, perfect timing for when everyone goes back to school.
