RE: [dvd-discuss] Gedanken Experiement -Unix and Norton

well do you use your own format of the AV definition file or are you using
MacAfee's or Norton's?  For the later they could get you -- DMCA seems to
prohibit reverse-engineering...

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?
of trade secret? Or DMCA violation? Now I'd bet money that Symantec would
anybody who did that into court and try arguing all three.
