Silmaril

But would overthrowing Eru/Iluvatar be considered obedience or disobedience?

I was originally going to say that Melkor, wanting to rule the universe (like so many do), was disobeying Eru, but was there ever any particular rule that said, in effect, "Thou shalt have no other god above me" (the 1st Commandment)? Was he necessarily disobeying if there wasn't a rule that said that Eru would be ruler for all times and none could overthrow him, or was it just assumed? Hmmm...now you got me wondering...
