Aw: Aw: Re: Acquiring Dental RVG on Linux

The company being acquired is correct. The license stuff is a different story. The license check might entirely happen in their commercial software. In other words talking to the device might be possible without any license check. If one knows how to talk to the device.

This theory would have to be checked with a 3rd party software that officially supports the device - if such a thing exists.

I've got a theory on the two devices:

Once upon a time an x-ray sensor was developed and
certified by Trophy.

Later, Trophy was acquired by Kodak.

Eventually, Kodak started marketing its sensor via CareStream.

Kodak wanted its RVG5200 to be branded "Kodak" (as in:
it shows up as "Kodak" on the USB bus).

Removing the Trophy USB IDs from the hardware and putting in the
Kodak USB IDs may have carried the risk of needing to re-certify
the device (even though it did not technically change).

So, for re-branding, Kodak simply put a USB veil (fake device)
"covering" the unchanged Trophy USB device.

If that theory holds I find it reasonable to assume that
the license checks happens in the *first* part of the init,
the Kodak device one.

Does that make any sense ?
