I'm usually interested in this Licensing stuff, so for everyones benefit:

Readup on Android Audio Architecture, particularly HAL:
https://source.android.com/devices/audio/

The Apache Licensed HAL Source Code:
https://source.android.com/devices/halre...ource.html

What does this Apache License mean, particularity the re-distribution rules:
http://www.apache.org/foundation/license...DoesItMEAN

Quote:It does NOT require you to:

- include the source of the Apache software itself, or of any modifications you may have made to it, in any redistribution you may assemble that includes it;

- submit changes that you make to the software back to the Apache Software Foundation (though such feedback is encouraged).

This is Very different from the GPL2 License the Kodi Open Source project is distributed under.

So Yes, Christian Troy is correct, the WeTek AMLogic Android Audio modifications can and will stay private and be perfectly legal in doing so.
