 that used to be the case but is no longer true.  please read section
2.5 of the bill of ethics before proceeding further with this thread:

 ARM's illegal and unethical activity which destroyed luc verhaegen's
career and reputation - including several counts of slander as well as
blackmail of the company funding his reverse-engineering efforts - was
the last straw.

 if we proceed to reverse-engineer MALI, logically it results in
people buying more ARM products.

 if people buy more ARM products, logically it results in more money
(resources) going to support ARM's illegal and unethical actions.

 any action which is taken that results in support or endorsement of
unethical actions is, logically, itself, unethical

 therefore, logically and plainly put: unless ARM's attitude changes
the reverse-engineering of MALI is itself an unethical act.

 so it's a simple chain of logical reasoning based on ethical principles.
