| What they did, was to make a local copy of the SEPT, then modify

Thought it was something like this.

| Now, making a copy is theoretically an infringement on the copyright
| holder's right, so is technically illegal, but, again, it is the copyright
| holder's decision to complain about this or not. That right is weakened,
| though, if one doesn't complain ALL the time.

IANAL, but on the contrary, my understanding is that right is null and void.
Ex:  Once you become AWARE of a trademark infringement, if you do NOT defend
your trademark by notifying the infringing party, you do not have a
defensible trademark in court later...  I've seen multiple references to
this fact, and believe it would apply to copyright as well, but dunno.  Not
to contradict what you are saying, as I understand it Leif, which is that
often the best lawyers win regardless of the what the law actually IS.  And
copyright/patent/etc. law is a hodge-podge, no doubt, at best...
