Hey, I recently got a packett sniffer to aid myself in investigating how MSN Messenger works. One day I hope to be able to create my own client in C++.
But for now, I'd like to know if there would be any legal problems with doing so? I don't plan to sell the client in any way, just to experiment with it... In my view it would be like creating a new web browser, with the MSN way of sending data rather then the HTML way. But with the way MS has licenses over everything, who knows what they might think about this.
So if anyone knows of any legal problems, or even of anyone who has done the same sort of thing and has any links, I would greatly appreciate hearing about it.
