Is telling others how to crack software illegal?
There's this programme from a few years ago that isn't being sold anymore, and there's a simple way to extend the free trial forever by changing the expiration date in a text file. I was wondering if it would be problematic to write and publish a guide on my website.

The Criminal Code sets out many offences that may cover cybercrime including several prohibiting others from breaching a person’s privacy and accessing their information. For instance, section 342.1(1) forbids unauthorized uses of a computer and makes hacking illegal. Section 430(1.1), the “mischief to data” section, covers situations in which someone damages or destroys data without prior authorization, such as transmitting computer viruses.
