I think the FBI made a criminal act just by buying the code. It's like buying stolen property knowing that fact, but unlike when they offer money to buy some stolen merchandise but actually to make the arrest. If they transferred the money, they are no more than criminals.

But i'm not a lawyer, so maybe i'm plain wrong.
