Clarification - End User License Agreement, plz read

Hi everyone,
Over the past several months, we’ve received questions about the End User License Agreement (EULA) that is in our games for The Sims 2 regarding custom content. Below is a statement from our Sims team. While there is no change to our End User License Agreement, we hope this clears up any confusion you might have regarding the EULA.
Thanks,
-MaxoidDrea

The Sims celebrates creativity, humor, and community. We strive to provide players with tools that enable them to customize and personalize their game experience. We are proud that so many of The Sims and The Sims 2 players create their own art for the games and share it with others. Sharing art online is a hobby that involves an investment of time, energy and money. Whether players choose to share their original artistic creations with the community is up to them: some custom content creators design work for a fee; some host their works on sites that organize, store and serve an enormous amount of content for subscribers; some artists request donations; and some artists allow all players to download their creations for free. These artists set their own terms for how they want to share their talents with the community at large. Those terms should be respected by other players.

As I said before, it's a bunch of nothing. No one is even named, it's just the "Sims team". Until EA's lawyers start saying they're perfectly fine with people reverse engineering the game and profiting thereby, it doesn't matter.

Even if they were to say that, of course (which I really don't see happening), I'd have my own opinion on the matter, and it wouldn't change.

MaxoidDrea made a statement. If EA wants to make a statement they need to change the EULA.

Keirra pretty much said what what I was going to say. This is informally stating the exact state of affairs...nothing solidified or new. *eye roll @ maxoid*

in other words:
Our EULA hasn't changed, but whomever decides to ignore it and do things that are expressly forbidden in our EULA, shall earn and deserve our respect and gratitude. We like it when people show complete contempt for our previoulsy stated policies.

Uhuh, make a new EULA and then put it in a new Sims 2 game so that we all have to agree to it before we use the game.  

I'm pretty sure we all agreed to "non-commercial", so what does the "sims team" even have to do with it?  For all we know the sims team could br Drea and her mates Steve and Thoma$$!

"Should" isn't legally binding is it?

About as binding as "play nice". Besides, I can think of a lot of reasons why I "should not" agree with them.

Actually, I find this stupid "statement" seriously insulting. These non-named people (who may be in MaxoidDrea's head) are not part of the community, and have never tried to be. Telling their customers what they "should" do about this is really disrespectful. But then, this is EA, which appears to be trying first-hand to see exactly what lies at the center of the earth. There is nothing so low that they won't sink to it.

If they think we should respect others TOU then they need to close down the exchange... that is the biggest file sharing site in the business if you ask me! lol  Peggys newest donation hair was all over the place today!

So, EA are allowing users to not go by the EULA? Does that mean that they also don't mind players who ARRR their games? As that is pretty much going against their rules too.

(I appologise if this is crappy writing, I don't have my glasses on because I have hair dye in)

She is basically saying they don't care if we violate the EULA.

I just realized: she made a statement that endorses the rights of people to sell Sim porn.

I look forward to MaxoidDrea's hasty exit any day now Cheesy.

So if we don't have to follow EA's EULA's does that mean we can all share Store stuff freely? Cheesy

I honestly can't take her seriously if she is going to put "plz" in the thread title. If this is the big announcement Thomass has been jizzing his pants over, then it is a major disappointment.
