I really wouldn't worry about it.  There aren't many countries that
restrict reverse engineering.  The US has the DMCA, but it is really
ulikely that would apply to this.  It doesn't sound like you're
circumventing effective control of the content, unless you've got
DeCSS in that code.  Even then, the case is very debatable.  In any
case, I wouldn't worry about it
