    I doubt that there is a problem with posting the key. Hackmii.com even has that same key listed...

    Keys, keys, keys.

    It's a DMCA issue. Not that I agree with it, but companies like to hide behind the DMCA and all of it's clauses in order to make things that could be used to copy stuff illegal. The common key can be used to make it easier to pirate wii games, so thus Nintendo may view giving it out as a violation of law.

    This same interpretation is used when it comes to the HD-DVD key. The MPAA started claiming the key was a tool used to circumvent copy protection, so they tried removing the key from the web due to its potential use in piracy.

    Yes, it makes no sense, but that's the official reasoning behind it.

    Yep, it's perfectly legal sharing the common key etc. It's a common misunderstanding you cannot share it.
