Then publish it anonymously. Most TV card hack software is also published
anonymously, and programs like dvdshrink (too bad it doesn't come with
sourcecode) and FairUse4WM too. No author known means noone to sue.

Companies don't need a valid legal reason to do that as long as they
think you can't afford the lawsuit for long. The scientology method
to use the legal system to sue someone into bancrupcy as default
strategy is something that almost all companies use against individuals.
