You are buying the game, so SCS is giving you a game for your money, so once you buy it you should be allowed to do what ever you want with it. It's your copy.

No it is not your copy of the game.
As for years (even pre digital distribution) you only bought a license to play the games......only the way how the software itself gets distributed to the one who bought it changed in the years.

Exactly, you are buying a licence to use intellectual property (the game) in a certain way (generally, play it); you are not buying the rights to the intellectual property itself and you are not allowed to do whatever you want with it.

EU approves controversial internet copyright law today.
So my question is how it will affect the modding world and should i stop thinking about making new trailer mods for the Ets2,if the Ets2 and Ats will be vanilla games soon? Or what will happen to the Pm map mod.
If i only start to use old versions of the Ets2 or Ats with mods,then can it still work like that,if i dont update the game anymore,if Scs makes the game to work in away,that nobody can use mods anymore.
So many questions,but not enough answers.
I would like to know what happens with that thing.

Of course. Just disable the automatic updating of games.

Some say, I'm addicted to ETS2. But then I say. No, it's ProMods, it's a way of life.
No. 3 forum spammer!

If ETS2 wouldn't support mods any more, there would be a huge number of player that won't update their game. In conclusion, this could be the end of ETS2!

I think that i will do it like that then,because then my Ats and Ets2 should work with my mods,because the new updates could block me from using mods in my games.
We must see what happens,because we still have some time to use our games in a normal way and after january of 2019 we will know what really happens,because then the Eu will vote about it again.
I hope that after that time we can still use our Scs games in the same way as before.
Scs could loose a lot of my money from the people who uses the games,that they make,because many people my self included will not use money for the Scs products anymore,because we cant use mods anymore with the games that they make.
