It's worth remembering that breach of EULA by eg reverse engineering = EA sues for damages in civil law. It must say what damage it suffered, prove that a person did the reverse engineering rather than repeated what somebody said, and claim the sums of damage it suffered.

If EA on the other hand, is breaching various data protection, privacy laws and unacceptable contract clause = criminal as well as regulatory and civil, ie the state/government pursues and possibly class action civil by licensees.

It would be ironic indeed if EA took a coder to court and claimed before a judge "as a result of the reverse engineering, the truth came out and we lost xxx in sales due to tarnished reputation".
