I can't find anything that explicitly prohibits game mods for PPD, CPA, etc.

Anyone know?

Just like the GTA game mods??? Well I think they will not be white hat as it is the modification of the work which is not in public domain and property of other.

+ If it is a mod of a paid game then it is super black hat. Smile

Sig goes here...

Really? It's not like it's piracy or anything.

Mods are whitehat as long as you have consent of the respective game publisher. Otherwise, it will infringe copyright as you are modifying the game without the company's prior consent.

For example, Nexus have permission from Bioware, Bethasda and other companies to create mods for the games they release.

However, there are still many people and sites producing mods without prior consent of the game developers. As they are not really pirating or anything, the game devs doesn't bother.

Thanks Eion.

Sites like modbb have mods for every game imaginable and they've been up for years. Maybe it's like you say, that game publishers and/or devs don't care about mods.
