We are talking here about some windows .dlls which are copied (and
probably modified) from some windows installation and packed into a .zip
archive. I didn't find any copyright statement at all, so redistribution
is out of question.

The other things I'm talking about is software which circumvents copy
protection measures. Redistribution of such software is prohibited by
law in US and EU legislatives.
