"Reports that say something hasn't happened are interesting to me, because as we know, there are known knowns; there are things we know we know. We also know there are known unknowns; that is to say we know there are some things we do not know. But there are also unknown unknowns — the ones we don't know we don't know."

Probably, and like the great wordsmith Yogi Berra once said "It's like deja-vu, all over again.".

Arrogance? You know what is arrogant? To build a RAW converter based on illegal reverse engineering of files and a totally erroneous conversion process, and then trying to dictate the market into adopting some kind of bogus open raw format that fails to properly separate "data" from "processing".
Do you have any evidence to back up your assertion that reverse-engineering a file format is illegal? Anyone other than the camera manufacturer has to reverse engineer raw file formats to open them. Do you really think that the companies who write third party raw conversion software are all breaking the law? If so, why haven't they been succcessfully sued?

As you're probably aware, it's common practice for office software to be able to open files written by competitor's software. Is this illegal?

Spot on.  Not only that, Chris, but does anyone really think that Adobe reverse engineers them before they are released so that often they have an update for a particular raw format at the same time the camera is released (or very shortly thereafter)?
