Depends; when IBM designed the PC and its BIOS, the first company which created a 3rd party BIOS (which allowed non-IBM hardware to be used with it) did so by using clean-room reverse-engineering techniques. Without proof of that approach, IBM would have found it much easier to sue them and prevail in court.
