EFF Petitions Government To Resurrect Abandoned Games

This petition is pretty damn interesting but, considering this is the government we are talking about, this could go either way.

The Electronic Frontier Foundation filed a petition to the Library of Congress and the United States Copyright Office this week over the modification of abandoned games, particularly those that require an online connection to prevent piracy. The EFF is seeking a change to current laws that would deem mods that strip out authentication checks as fair use of the software after developers take those servers offline.
