What's legal?

Wasn't there that thing in the past with SARS, where the US Government
was threatening to break the BAYER Patent of an Medicament, if BAYER wouldn't sell
that cheaply to americans? (or something like this?)

What about the International Court of Justice?
What about Mohammad Mossadegh?
What about Maduro in Venezuela?

Please define what "legal"  means to you.

BTW: There is no need to make an "Hobbyist license key generator", that
thing already exists (as can be read in that thread here) and is
available in source code.
