Did anybody do anything illegal ?

Perhaps. Note the bit about the Oregon probe and resulting agreement.

But this is the point, isn't it? Kickstarter and the like are potentially a nice legal way to run profitable scams. As long as you can make it appear that you made a sincere effort to deliver the product, you're in the clear. Meanwhile, you've been able to give yourself X years of income.
