Is white hat hacking legal in gaming industry? –
White hat hackers are hackers that just want to analyse software. I am working an old online game, that got shut down years ago. I just do this for fun not to publish a server emulator, which would be illegal I think. So is it legal to just publish the semantics of the software and to explain how others could create such software? Could I also provide tools that help them? And at which point are those tools illegal? For example if it was just a basic server that would work with any client this should be legal I think. But if it includes functions that just work with the client it should be illegal right?
And how legal are patches? I know that translation patches are not really legal, since they still include text that is protected by copyright. But how about technical patches? They just have an effect on copyright software, but do not include any copyrights from different persons.
