Isn't the whole Android stack licensed under Apache 2.0? Doesn't everyone
have full access to the android userspace code?

In your slides, you made several references to only google developers being
able to modify the low-level libraries, which I admit I still don't understand.

If we have full access to the source under an Apache 2.0 license, what would
prevent us from making the required modifications and re-releasing the
modified sources under the same Apache 2.0 license?

Best regards,

Elvis Dowson
