AMD "This morning at the X Developer Summit in the United Kingdom, Matthew Tippett and John Bridgman of AMD have announced that they will be releasing their ATI GPU specifications without any Non-Disclosure Agreements needed by the developers! In other words, their GPU specifications will be given to developers in the open. Therefore you shouldn't need to worry about another R200 incident taking place. The 2D specifications will be released very soon and the 3D ones will follow shortly."

I wouldn't count on that till it is completely obsolete. Afterall getting royalities for access to the GPU is how Sony makes up for theis subsided PS3 prices. In some time they may release some limited sdk for the GPU for indie devs but that's probably still far off.
