Well, too bad that wine servers are located at USA. Does DMCA also says that
there should be no discussion about cracks and using it if no one even posts
URL to that crack? I think it's the most dumb thing one can invent. Well, maybe
you break the US law (which isn't my case, for example, because I'm from Russia
but never mind) when you actually apply the crack but what's unlawful in
discussion without even a link? Killing people is illegal but writing
detectives is legal and making thrillers where people die (not really, of
course), too.
