As I've pointed out several times, though the statement that to remove DRM is illegal in some countries has been repeated often no one
has been able to cite a case where anyone has been prosecuted, or any case law.
Xenophon has posted about this subject several times, and to the best of my recollection has a legal background. If I remember his comments correctly even the lawyers hold wildly different opinions.
So the opinion that it is perfectly legal to remove DRM is just as valid as the opinion that it is illegal to do so.
