LXer: Linux: Reverse Engineering Wireless Drivers

Published at LXer:

Following Andrew Morton [interview]'s overview of what will likely be merged into the 2.6.18 kernel [story], several developers discussed the legality of the ACX1xx wireless driver. Jeff Garzik began the discussion, "I've never had technical objections to merging this, just AFAIK it had a highly questionable origin, namely being reverse-engineered in a non-clean-room environment that might leave Linux legally vulnerable."
