Correction, it only exist on paper if printed. The proper phrase is "a
worthless configuration of pixels"

The TPVP makes it clear what the consequences are for breaking the policy.
8c says:

"If a Third-Party Viewer or your use or distribution of it violates this
Policy or any Linden Lab policy, your permission to access Second Life using
the Third-Party Viewer shall terminate automatically. You acknowledge and
agree that we may require you to stop using or distributing a Third-Party
Viewer for accessing Second Life if we determine that there is a violation."

So either the lab will enforce this, or they will say "Well you are so
popular you can screw around all you want".  Is Emerald the viewer "too big
to fail"?
