Subject: Re: FTDI clone development
Thank you for the warning - I know this might have some legal issues
attached, which I will look into before starting the implementation.
However I find it very unlikely that it would be illegal to implement
a protocol which is compatible with another. If that would be the
case, libftdi itself would be troubled too.
I don't intend to use the FTDI chips' VID/PID, and I don't intend to
sell these units for a profit either.
I am sorry if I offended anyone, I thought that a cheaper alternative
would be welcomed by all.
