"Out of curiosity, what would happen if you wanted to run Portable.NET in the US or places where reverse engineering is illegal? Would it still be legal to run Portable.NET?"

Sorry to be pedantic but reverse engineering is not illegal in the U.S. Indeed the DCMA has a specific exemption for reverse engineering for purposes of computer compatability. The problem in the U.S. in this case are the plethora of software patents which while they are not likely to be used against a home user, may well be invoked either for financial gain or purely anti-competitive purposes if an application achieves significant commercial usage.
