I don't know. While it's no different from burning a CD or filesharing off the internet, I side with Square Enix. They're really on top of this and they are adamant about their intellectual property before the loss of their intellectual property gets out of hand.

That aside, these guys really deserve to be taken in. Can you imagine people with Buster Swords? One show-offy guy + Buster Sword + Friend = Limit Break = Omnislash = man meat = tasty, but bad---really bad.
