You'd have to look long and wide to find a judge who would consider convicting you for having a malware author borrow code that is clearly not intended as malware.

You would not have to look far for an appeals court who would overturn such a stupid judgement.

To use the example that you brought up, the LAME folks have no worries about being sued for facilitating malware even though their software got used by Sony. (Of course there is the aditional issue of copyright violation there...)

[perldigious]: 1nickt: No more red meat! It would be more humane to just kill you, wouldn't it! :-)
[1nickt]: Just don't make it barf.
[1nickt]: perldigious that's exactly what my stepson says.
[1nickt]: the tick that can make you a vegetarian
[perldigious]: Your Mother: Yeah, I have a tool for ticks that I use (mostly on my dogs thankfully), but it's just a cheapo one I got from my vets office... it works pretty good though.
erix saw a tick in a natural history museum collected from the scrotum of the curator (it was removed)
[Your Mother]: The exhibit, the tick, or the scrotum?
[erix]: (the man is even a paleontologist )
[1nickt]: erix unfortunately that's there favourite spot. That's why they are usually spotted crawling *up* your leg.
[erix]: ha, the tick and, as it happens, also the curator (now a professor of Paleont.)
