comment Can software be legally rewritten if the original source code is not used?
There's really two parts to this question. Is it legal, and are you likely to have to deal with a legal battle. The answers to those two questions are not always the same.

Not at all. But they are for matching patterns. Winning a game of chess is simply not that sort of task.

comment Why isn't the overloading with return types allowed? (at least in usually used languages)
This is only an issue with statically typed languages, by the way. Having multiple return types is pretty routine in dynamically typed languages like Javascript or Python.

comment How are dynamic images programmed?
They are likely generating on the image on the fly, which is the interesting bit. (And not visible in the page source.) There are over 2.3 million possible images based on the combinations you pick.

comment What is the opposite of a headless browser?
Police reports may describe a "headless body", or they may describe a "body". They never say "a body with a head".
