That sound you hear is applause from all the corporate lobbyists in the room.

Violating a corporation's terms and conditions is not "illegal." Police will not bust down my door if I let my nephew play a computer game that I paid for. Now, if the company wants to argue I've done them some financial harm by running an arcade out of my house, the burden is on them to not be laughed out of civil court. I think this country has done more than enough to encourage free enterprise; we needn't give corporations exclusive access to the law, too.
