It's not as simple as that. It's simply wrong that you cannot write a driver without licensing the DDK (even according to German laws, duh). If you can write the driver without the DDK, it's perfectly legal to do so. There is nothing illegal about the available drivers that were written without having access to the DDK (elbox, mntmn, vampire, mint, fpgaarcade).

Why not? There is a perfectly legal driver for it.
