The legality of a project is a major concern for everyone involved.
Sure, there's lots of cool things that can be done that are illegal,
but the developers are responsible for the code and their names are
right out there in the open. It's like stealing from a store and
leaving your photo id behind.

Now, as for your suggestion, it is entirely illegal and something that
the Myth community has said time and time again they will not condone
nor will they actively help out.
