I think your best bet is to contact the original authors of the code and ask for permission to simply use their code as a point of reference. If they say yes, ask for it in writing :-) If they say no, your probably better of going elsewhere for that info (the BSD umass code?). Even if
it's legal to look ove rthe code and use it as a reference, you probably don't want to get on their bad side and risk anything.

The Question: Can I use this source as reference information about FREECOM protocol for writing my own implementation under BSD license? No, I'm not going to copy-paste any info from original sources. Work with USB in Linux and BeOS is different - no chance to re-use. Only ideas. I need just information how to initialize device, read/write data, handle errors etc.
