[dvd-discuss] Gedanken Experiement -Unix and Norton

In view of the recent discussions on the w32.klem.h consider this...

Suppose someone writes a virus scanner for Unix that uses Norton Anti-Virus 
definition files rather than their code. Is that copyright infringement? Theft 
of trade secret? Or DMCA violation? Now I'd bet money that Symantec would haul 
anybody who did that into court and try arguing all three.
