I am afraid that there is no way to get PAUP legally at the moment.
The Illinois Natural History Survey has been distributing it for
years.  Dave does not distribute it himself.  At the moment, I believe that
INHS has suspended distribution. (My understanding is that they do this
now and then to the frustration of many).
PAUP 4.?.? is likely to be released this summer (?) but there are NO
guarantees on this!!
Mind you I have seen it in action and it is worth waiting for.
(Though perhaps it should be renamed to "PULP" as it has likelihood
built in to it I am led to believe.
Wether or not it will still be handled by INHS is not known.  There
are rumours of a Sinauer interest as with MacClade.

Although this may be informative, I am afraid it mey not help you.
I would try INHS, and no I do not have an address or phone#.
