Man faces prison for helping people modify their own game consoles: Judge Bars ‘Fair Use’ Defense in Xbox Modding Trial;

Ford Slaps Brand Enthusiasts, Returns Love With Legal Punch, AdRants (Jan. 14, 2008) (Ford Motor Company claims that they hold the rights to any image of a Ford vehicle, even if it’s a picture you took of your own car);
