A while back I was looking through the DMCA trying to figure out what implications it had and, unless I really need to go get lunch (which I do), there is a provision in there for reverse engineering.

Basically, someone would have to write Apple a note indicating what we want to do. Apple can then either offer us a license or not. If not, or if they don't respond in a reasonable amount of time, we are allowed to reverse engineer the device.

Reverse engineering without asking is illegal though.

This was in a section dealing with extending the functionality of a device made by someone else. Something to look into I suppose.
