UAE IS illegal in the EU, there is no doubt about that.
EU copyright law only allows you to make copies for very specific reasons, none of which apply.
(One such reason is to make a back-up but since you can't backup hardware, this doesn't apply)
Hence you are not allowed to copy a ROM even if you own it and dump it on a disk
AmigaForever is different ofcourse because Cloanto licensed the Kickstart for distribution with their product.
The main thrust of the argument against MorphOS is not the decompilation issue but the unfair and parasitic competition argument.
Marketing and advertising a compatible product by reference to the original constitutes unfair and parasitic competition.
No matter how MorphOS was developed (by decompilation or otherwise) as long as that's what they are doing, it will remain illegal.
