Contract breach (let's assume a valid contract)/not fulfilling
contractual obligations is not illegal.

The contract laws recognize a concept called "efficient breach" which
encourages breach of a contract if it's economically efficient to do so.
Compliance with a contract is almost always voluntary -- if you choose
not to comply, then you don't have to. You merely have to compensate the
non-breaching party for his expectancy interest (pay contract damages). 


(GNG is a derecursive recursive derecursion which pwns GNU since it can 
be infinitely looped as GNGNGNGNG...NGNGNG... and can be said backwards 
too, whereas GNU cannot.)
