It seems others feel the same way, understandably so. I'd expect
Chrome's keys to be replaced, with added protection so they remain
secret, before legal action would be considered.

In any case, I posted a request for clarification on whether using
Chrome's keys is illegal or not. [1] Perhaps they will be able to
definitively tell us that it's not allowed (under EU Law).
