    According to the DMCA, devices used to circumvent copyright protection are illegal. It doesn't matter if that's what you use it for or not.

    If they were not illegal then there would be no grounds to all the arrests that were recently made of mod chip guys. The arrests were not of people using mod chips to play copied games, it was guys who sell and install them who were arrested.

    I thought I remember the wording being that its "sole use" had to be to circumvent copyright protection. All these people arrested have to do is prove there is a legitimate use. I think that if any of these arrested chose to fight and not plea bargain that they would win. That is of course barring any other evidence (ie. pirated games)

    I would bet that most of the people targeted were also selling pirated games with the mod chips like the idiots on craigslist.

    p.s. I am not advocating piracy, and I do not have a mod'ed Wii, but I cant say that when I was in college that I didn't partake in the occasional free game.

    Sorry if this is in the wrong place.
    So...you're saying the Wii's fine now? It works?
