Was The Democratic Party Violating the Law by Using Research Sites Without Properly Paying?

Yesterday, Guccifer 2.0 released another set of hacked information -- this time taken from the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee. Although there few political revelations in the release, there was something of interest: the DCCC may have been using research journals such as Lexis-Nexis and NewsBank without properly paying for licenses for all users. Not only would this be against the Terms of Service -- it can, in fact, be a criminal offence.
