Hello everyone,

I'm writting a program to control hp scanjet 3970 (at this momment I can
not call it 'backend') using reverse engineering to a windows library
provided by HP. And I have a doubt. Due to the structure of the program
is similar to functions debugged in the library... could I have any
legal problems with HP? Could exist any problem in making GPL any code
derived from aplying reverse engineering to a copyrighted library?

Sincerelly, JKD
