And the majority of those graphical downloads are ones that edit in content that the game did not come with the licenses for - that's just never going to happen officially.

Oh you mean like all the player names and likenesses in CA?

Big Ant will add their disclaimer; if you see a copyright violation let us know and we'll remove it. The sponsors aren't going to care. It's free advertising for them.

It's very different having actual logos of teams and companies in the game via patches, and likenesses made by adjusting sliders.

Ross has said in the past that they don't have the resources to handle the necessary vetting supporting user generated content like that.

I know what he said but firstly we're not talking about adding licensed content via official patches and secondly I don't think they would have to adopt an approach of approving every graphic before the game was allowed to use it. They won't be doing that for the Steam version.

Well you essentially are once you have an in game ability to download 'user modifications' to the graphics of a console game.

secondly I don't think they would have to adopt an approach of approving every graphic before the game was allowed to use it. They won't be doing that for the Steam version.
Well we don't know if they would be supporting Steam's 'official' modification ability with the Steam Workshop, which even opens the door for people trying to sell modifications to games.

All the indications seem to be just slightly opening the door for the same external modifications that are technically violations of the end user agreements that virtually every other PC game has.

Making the jump to the semi-endorsement that adding such things to a console game would do - which they've already said would require vetting, combined with already being near the edge legally with the Cricket Academy, is just something I'd never see happen.

As I've said, mods are basically illegal for the users. When you agree to the terms and conditions, you agree not to change the game.

So Big Ant aren't liable: you are.

You aren't gaining any money from it, so the actual owner of the IP aren't likely to come after you (though technically they could), and they can't go after Big Ant because they didn't do it.

It's a degree of separation that allows it to happen.

That just gave me an idea bit off topic, Planet cricket can may be use this chance to create a few Planet cricket mods that are either donation ware or to be bought via a PC store or steam workshop if its possible.
Like a planet cricket stadium, more customized kits and player likeness of whoever is buying it.(ofcourse after making @Ross to agree not to sue PC)
