I don't understand your reasoning here. Whenever one enters into a legally binding agreement (e.g., a license agreement), how can the subsequent violation of that agreement by one of the parties not be "illegal?" Are you suggesting that these software licensing agreements are nonbinding or not legally enforceable? I think there have been a sufficient number of successful court cases to show that (at least in general) the agreements are legally enforceable. I'm not entirely sure what you're suggesting, but if you or anyone else on this list is recommending or even condoning behavior that is likely to be illegal, I have a major problem with that. It's unethical, IMHO, and such suggestions shouldn't be a part of this list. Ignorance of the law is one of the reasons there are so many fully-employed lawyers in this country.
