    I don't think cloaking in general is illegal, unless you are profiting from it and it violates the Ts&Cs of an advertising company you're using. Google will penalize you if you use this method though.

    Basically, Cloaking is:
    Cloaking is a search engine optimization (SEO) technique in which the content presented to the search engine spider is different from that presented to the user's browser.

    If you're not cloaking with the intention of profiting then why the fuck would you cloak in the first place...

    Anyways, I wouldn't worry about it OP.
