    I don't take quite the same bearish view on this app.

    I suspect the "reverse engineering" here was just looking at Bluetooth LE GATT attributes and values, which you can just look at using something like Bluetility [1]. There appears to be some exemptions to DMCA for compatibility so long as the author didn't copy Bose' code, but IANAL. [2]

    The name I think is the more challenging part because it's very close - probably a C&D if it becomes popular to change the name.
