Well, if ML is doing a clean room reverse engineer of the camera, that should be perfectly legal. He isn't doing anything that helps 'circumvent' safe guards....like people have come down on gaming mods for. This hack doesn't allow you to circumvent copyrighted material.
Nope, the contract for a fw upgrade (the current cannot be extracted out of the camera) it says you mustn't reverse engineer it at all.
Hmm...what contract? I've never signed a contract with Canon for anything. Are you saying ML signed some contract with Canon?
And I was referring to reverse engineering the hardware, not the software as such. If someone wanted to write a clean room firmware to replace
the firmware provided by Canon, there's nothing illegal about that..
