If they were selling on commercial software, they would be prosecuted, but since it is provided for free, no-one is going to do anything about it.
Personally I don't really like it, but it is not a big deal. No-one is really losing out on money. However it is better in my opinion to burn it yourself and donate the money to the developers. Not that I donated any money to anyone myself.
That would be my approach also.
Seriously, it's as simple as
Download a couple of files
Download a free app to put the image on the SD card
Put into Nook Color
I'm not familiar with N2A cards on Nook Tablets, but on the NC it's really kind of idiot proof.
It's the devs that deserve the donations.
