But there's published documentation with precise description of what the
API do - why copying that would be a reverse engineering? It's like if I
wanted to write a driver for NVidia adapter - there's no way I would avoid
copying all the same API they have in the hardware, and, eventually it
would have all the same interface as the NVidia proprietary drivers. That's
not stealing from NVidia (in the case outlined above), it's just creating
an alternative, which cannot vary from the original because of what it does.
