So say I am writing an open source program, or any program really, and I embed a Bitcoin miner in the code, so that when people run my program, they would be earning Bitcoins for me.
Would this be legal?
Would I get sued for doing this?
The reason why this is important is because I love free and open source software, the only problem being that this doesn't pay the bills. I fully intend to at least inform the users of my program that there is a Bitcoin miner embedded in the program, if not also make a non-miner version available.
