Legal issues for providing alternative library implementation?

Recommended Posts

What kind of general legal issues can arise if I implement an interface from a vendor? I've done some novel work for my game and I am thinking about packaging up the results in what I feel is an intuitive programmer interface (MFC). Any implementation would be strictly proprietary to me, no linking to actual MFC libs, in fact all the classnames would be under a separate namespace so that the two can inter-operate if necessary. I have just sketched out a bunch of headers at this point so befoere I go any further I want to make sure doing something like this isn't a dead end.

Just to clarify - you want to create your own implementation of some parts of MFC?

My gut feeling is that if you copy any of MFC's work, including just the interface, its probably copyright infringement.

My other gut feeling is that I should question why you would want to use MFC at all?
