Someone determined enough to rework autopilot to work everywhere is not going to be stopped by the terms of a EULA.

It might be easier than you would think. It's possible Tesla (or other vehicles with self-driving features) have latent capabilities already in their software, which just need to be switched on. A hacker playing around in his garage might feasibly jailbreak the car and flip this switch. Whereas I would agree with you to the extent that writing self-driving software that uses all the various data inputs and maps to pilot the vehicle, from scratch, is not something very many people are even capable of doing.

Had the same thought, that would be quite the feat.

But that logic is kept far away from legal decision making.
