Jack Thompson vs. The Sims

Sims 2 content worse than Hot Coffee on GameSpot describes how crusading attorney Jack Thompson is directing his concerted anti-gaming focus on The Sims 2, saying its salacious unlockable content "is no different than what is in San Andreas, although worse." Hey Jack... pick on someone your own size!

Well, I'm still worried that this could damage the support for mods in future games though. I think a recent court ruling said that file-sharing companies ARE responsible for making sure illegal transfers don't occur over their networks. It used to be where they weren't responsible for that, it was only the individual users who were breaking the law.
So even if EA gets off scot-free, which everyone says is likely.. who knows, game companies may just rather shut down mod support for their future games instead of having to deal with legal hassles.
