Actually, this whole reverse engineering debate is not at all about your right as a person to reverse engineer whatever software. (You don't really think that Larry and his legal counsil would have overseen this, do you?)
It's about how much information Larry has to release in order for other developers to use that in their own software. Which is an entirely different discussion and one you are not likely to win in court. Since Larry is not at all obliged to release *any* information.
