    Data Theft

    At what point is being "curious" considered hacking or being destructive?

    Depends on the circumstances, really. I don't believe there is a definitive answer to your question. Generally speaking something as simple as attaching to a service you do not have 'rights' to could be construed as hacking however in legal terms there has to be some type of malice intended, I believe. It's really complicated. I could think of a thousand scenarios that could be construed as hacking when in fact that was not the intent.

    Do you mean according to the law, or according to "hackers"?

    Yeah, software piracy. If you didn't pay for it, its illegal.

    If you don't have permission to access the machine, its illegal.
