Comment EULA Question (Score 2) 1942

I have a few questions about the EULA which pose some interesting situations. 1) If I'm under 18 and I install a game and push "I accept" but then violate the EULA, can they do anything? Since I'm a minor, the "contract" is null and void, and in theroy I can do whatever I want. 2) If I don't accept the EULA, does that mean that I can attempt to reverse engineer the software? I'm not to sure about copyright laws, but I didn't agree to the "no-reverse engineering" bit in the EULA. 3) What if (again) I don't accept the EULA, but manage to copy all the files off the CD and onto my computer, making the directory structure in tact and all files in place? In theroy I can do whatever I want (including play and/or possibly modify the files) as I did not agree to the EULA. I've been wondering about these questions, but I've never been able to find the answers. Maby someone can answer these questions.
