brunnock, the software in question (I really hope SSacobie or someone from GetHigh can find the direct link), doesn't actually modify your site's content as such. That is, it effectively layers other content on top, and only those surfers who are using their software can see these changes. Although unethical, I don't believe that this is in violation of any existing intellectual property laws.

It is, in fact, very similar to the systems presently employed by NBCi (QuickClick) and Spedia (see the recent thread about this) that seem to change the content of your site by replacing keywords within your body text with commercial links to pay-for-placement search engines, or advertisers' sites.
