Of course I see your point. And I (mostly) agree with all the comments telling that Broadcom did less than the say in PR. I would certainly welcome disassembling/reverse engineering of broadcom firmware (it is doable, nouveau people did it for firmware-based cards). What I'm telling is that the border line is not that straight and clear.
