It's not illegal to reverse engineer commercial software as far as I know, however it is often a breack of end user licence terms to reverse engineer said software, EULA's being built ontop of copyright and I believe civil law and not criminal law.

Ignoreing all of that, stupid move really, in such a tiny well-informed market it can only be bad publicity, I'm sure it'll have a few less people interested in buying any future producs of theres for this platform and mabie others.
