This is indeed stupid from them.
But I am willing to confront Archos on that claim as I think there is no legal basis to it.
I will release everything I manage to work out. We'll see what happens :)
I precise that I don't care if I get credit for it, what interests me is being able to code whatever I want on my gmini, the rest is not my problem ;)

That's definitely an advice I'll listen !
