10.5: Use 1Password 2.x in Safari 5 for Leopard

Typically, changing the contents of an app violates the EULA... so, this is a little like posting the license key and I would think would be against the macosxhints poilicy, unless crarko checked it out first with the developer.

Giving someone instructions on how to do something is not against the law (certain DMCA rules excepted). The vast majority of "modify" hints here all deal with changing application bundles to make them work the way you want them to do so. There's nothing illegal about that.

You may -- or may not -- be violating an EULA, but that's not breaking "the law." That's breaking a license agreement with the company, and it's up to them to determine what steps they want to take. But first they need to prove that you did it, and then they'll need to be willing to take their EULA into a court, where it would be subject to gross scrutiny. So far, I've never heard of anyone being taken to court for a EULA violation.

What you *can't* do is distribute a modified version of an app, or even of its resources. That's copyright infringement.
