It is not illegal to read the code held in the eeprom in the stereo, its possible changing that code is illegal under all things the copyright law. No cases have ever been prosicuted, to my knowlage.
The code is derrived from a number like A123 at the end of a long number on the stereo or in a box marked security code. However its a very simple job to write a new code to the eeprom in the set. this may have happened to a set where the code is entered correctly but will not work. In this case a company that decodes sets in this last way will need yo be found, I would suggest you ask them to put the correct code in the set.
Sorry I can not give codes from numbers on the side of the set on this forum, although I dissagree I have agreed to the forum rules.
