You DO own the product, thus why you are able to modify it. You DON'T, however, own XBox Live as that is a server that Microsoft provides for you so long as you fulfill your end of the deal (money, not cheating, etc).

This is the way EVERYTHING works in life. If you don't follow the rules of a system, you'll end up losing your ability to use said system. For example, driving (if you speed, drive on the wrong side of the road, drive while intoxicated, etc you get fined and may lose your license).

so Microsoft won't have a problem with private X-Box online servers? if it's my X-Box and i can do whatever i want with it, shouldn't mind if i use my X-Box on third party gaming servers.

My friend sells a mod chip that can get you unbanned easily in Xbox(1) live. They'll probably do the same for the Xbox 360.

Beyond that, most are just to "backup" games, but, really, how many people do you know that have modchips just to backup their own personal games that they've already bought? I don't really blame them because backing up games is not something that people do like they back up movies. I'll go ahead and speculate to say that the vast majority of people willing to give up warranty support on a $300ish system and have console hardware modified are looking to pirate or abuse the system in some way. Simply put, the average person looks at it like $300 they might be out, whereas the pirater looks at it like $1000's in potential free (-rental fee) games.

Anyways, people know that modchips violate their ToS; it's their own fault.
