Wait for someone to confirm but I would imagine it is not illegal to softmod the Wii but it would then be illegal to play a game on it for which you have not purchased. This type of topic isn't my arena so I wouldn't take my word for it.

Yeah, I just wasn't sure if I can actually sell the service legally. Hmmm hopefully someone will know... Thanks for the help though pal! :)

Wouldn't say extremely easy but easy as long as you read and understand the tutorials perfectly!

Pretty easy if you have the correct information on how it's done.There are plenty of tutorials all over the net, but most are hard to follow.

I would post the link to the information i used to do mine, but i would probably get banned or something.

you can do what you want to any device you own, its only illegal when you pirate copyrighted software

People will pay you to load Indiana jones on their console and press a couple of buttons??

If they can't do that themselves I doubt they will know how to download games and put them onto a USB drive to make use.

I reckon it's legal as long as you state it, don't see the problem myself.

Anyone got a link to anything that backs that opinion up?

It's illegal to circumvent copy protection, add 'in the course of a business' and you have a criminal offence that you can go to jail for.
So pretty obvious charging for doing it will be pretty dodgy to say the least.

I think it's a bad idea in all honesty... Haha I will expire this :)
