It just seems to me to be very lacking morally to try and hide the fact that your friend did actually perform on the time and date they are alleged to have performed.
The American legal system is a big game of picking and choosing which evidence is most helpful to your argument, and suppressing evidence that is helpful to the other party. Valuable evidence is thrown out all the time because it was inappropriately acquired. I'm not saying it's right, or that I agree with it, but that's just how the system is played.
Morality has very little bearing on legal proceedings, at least not in America.

Has anyone actually found if the law addresses whether or not an attorney needs permission (or a license) to use a copy of a copyrighted work as evidence in a court of law?
It still doesn't seem like a copyright infringing use.
Not yet, but I'll try to make an update if I find out, and am permitted to do so.
