They might be illegal in the US, but that doesn't mean they are illegal in 
other countries.  And, believe it or not, most people in the world do not 
live in the US.
Besides, there is a difference between 'illegal' and 'immoral'.  Is it immoral 
to play games you have legally bought?

Copy protection is already implemented for some games.  When it works for all 
games, we won't have to link to cracks. :)
