[AirPlay][Warning] Don't update to iOS8 if you want AirPlay
#15
Apple doesn't license AirPlay to open source groups, because then anyone could see how to use AirPlay without paying for a license. So far Apple has only licensed audio AirPlay, but has not licensed the video parts of AirPlay to anyone.

It's very doubtful that Apple would sue people for cracking their encryption. Apple's smart enough to know when the genie is let out of the bottle, and they haven't sued anyone for AirPlay audio (AirTunes) being cracked a few years back. Nor have they sued anyone regarding AirPlay mirroring encryption being cracked (however, no open source AirPlay mirroring method currently exists).

That being said, there are less and less people willing to take the time to crack these things and reverse engineer them, as Apple changes them often. That is the real hold up. It's just not really worth the time and effort.
