VIKTOR SCHRECK: Once we have established the precedent that not complying with an End user License Agreement is a violation fo Federal Law, the next step is to ensure that civil charges as well as criminal charges can be filed against the offending customer.

This will make it easier to seek redress in the courts, because instead of seeking punitive damages, the company would merely be seeking compensatory damages in the amount that the company was defrauded when the customer willfully violated the EULA.
