In reply to: Adobe EULA
Parent article: Two approaches to Flash
I'm a Gnash developer, and we have taken professional legal advice on this issue. It turns out that the Macromedia/Adobe EULA is illegal in the EU and unenforcable in the US.
However even a lawsuit that is doomed to fail would still cost a developer lot of time, distraction, expense and patience, so we prefer to play it safe.
In practice there are plenty of people who are not programmers or reverse engineers, who are happy to run test movies for us and send us screenshots of what the output should look like.
