    Phoronix: Purism's FSP Reverse Engineering Effort Might Be Stalled

    If they had to remove it they sure as hell were successful with reverse engeneering the blobs. If this was reverse engineered properly (which I believe) and no code from Intel was used or even read by the devs, can Intel still enforce (by law/lawyers) to not have this published? I am thinking about the WINE project and their code audit as a compairison.

      Maybe legally Purism was alright but didn't want to risk it anyway. Trials are expensive.

              This doesn't help to increase my trust again, Intel!

                  Reminder that reverse engineering in principle doesn't inflict copyright , because of the https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Idea...ression_divide
