all there people here are voluntieers on hardware without all the specs, what the are doing can be only appreciated, imo.
wens: we can't fork hardware (not yet)
nove: weren't you complaining about software?
legal talk videos not available yet...
i went to that one
wens: but, is reverse engineering allways the solution, at what cost?
if we reverse engineering all the things, we are giving the message that the software licenses are a detail that can be ignored

eventually, making copyleft licenses the same value as permissive licenses
wens, the fork+ignore was about a software that was initially MIT-licensed but (c) belonging to a company. When the company made it closed source, the community took the last free version, forked it and kept it going. Similar to OpenOffice.org->LibreOffice.

ssvb, it was originally licensed with MIT, then GPL. While under GPL it was "made" closed source and the fork took place.
