Cracks are not legal (at least not under US law and the DMCA), and under 
linux they can sometimes be not easy either..  Part of the DMCA says you 
cannot circumvent any sort of copy protection (which a crack does).

If the laws in your country are different, feel free to do whatever is 
allowed under those laws.
