Thanks for the confirmation. How would this affect modding communities? Most game companies have an informal policy (and sometimes stated) that derivative works can be made or at least they will not enforce copyright on those works that reuse assets on the same game the originals came from.

Now we have another copyright holder in the mix if the artist isn't transferring all rights to the buyer. My guess is it doesn't change anything yet as mods will still be made from the game assets and its not worth enforcing copyright law when there is no money being made (on mods).
