Ok I have a double negative but you I guess that makes a positive
Anyway, first of all it probably isn't really correct to decribe this game as legal, as it has been created using, and for, reverse engineered products, which as we all know is not legal. The fact that the actually SDK used for development does not have a copyright associated with it is neither here nor there.
Secondly - Woohoo! I can turn my PS3 into an Atari 2600
Had to get those out there, but seriously... Well done on the work and the progress
I don't know what it is about everyone 'respecting the law', but really, when there's discernable doubt whether or not reverse engineering is 'legal' or 'illegal' at this point, then I'd say it goes without saying that the current law is 'crazy', and should not even be respected at all.
I mean, it is technically 'illegal' of Sony to hold patches they commit to a toolchain that is licensed under the GPL to themselves - since GPL stands for GNU GENERAL PUBLIC License, and no, posting those patches on scedev.net and restricting access to it on a developer-by-developer basis (you basically have to ask Sony if you could PLEASE get the patches they committed to the toolchain) does not strike me as being very 'general public' at all.
So, really, Sony can screw over their customers (OtherOS removal) and get to freeload off open-source software for all the want and violate the license with their obtuse refusal to share patches, but oh noes if the customer/homebrewer is suspected of 'violating' the law...
