Quote from: Gaza07 on Wednesday,July 18, 2012, 07:28:46 What is really needed is a independent third party to look at this and then say if there is really a violation, and not some one who knows programing and might well be biased saying go and decompile it your self and see, when they know full well it is just going to look like a load of rubbish to a non programmer, why dont they list the violations with clear pointers and explanations as to what is copied, and not just say there are similarities and expect us to take their word for it,I fully agree that if the rabbit went open source it would actually sell more and would be very good for all, who knows maybe one day it will, but for now its not and all I say is don't get pulled in to the bull that's gong about and enjoy your purchase
Quote from: Gaza07 on Wednesday,July 18, 2012, 10:09:17 I'm not saying there is no violation as Im not qualified to do so but, at the same time I find a few lines of decompiled code hard to take as evidence,
QuoteMotor mixer is definitely 100% multiwii, down to using same macros etc, and a lot of other things like reading/saving settings, main loop, uart organization, etc seems to follow multiwii code patterns.
QuoteIn all honesty Im sitting on the fence on this one and just hope the rabbit dev team release there source code and put an end to the arguing one way or the other
QuoteThe impression i get is that with code there are so many different ways to do things that when you get similarities cropping up that's a strong indicator that people have copied each others work.
Quote from: Gaza07 on Wednesday,July 18, 2012, 11:02:22 I knew at some point on the forum this subject would crop up and I welcome an open and friendly debate / discussion about it and nothing you have said could possibly be taken in the wrong light, every one is entitled to there opinion, (even if you are wrong ) sorry just kidding
QuoteIf the similarities are in the source code which we have no access then yes its copied but, what I was getting at was could the decompiler be interpolating the code and not actually showing exactly as it was coded, I wonder if the decompiled code could be recompiled and actually work

Quote from: MadMax on Wednesday,July 18, 2012, 16:11:18 You might be on to some thing there but looking down the list in the link you gave why on earth didnt they choose tiger or dragon even rooster might have been better than wabbit Although it could have been much worse they could have gone for pig
