Isn't Chrome's implementation of Flash their own? IIRC it is. I'm not sure what restrictions Adobe has placed on open/closed source in the open standard, but I would imagine the MPEG-LA most certainly will not allow you to create an open source implementation. That's a pretty big distinction if you ask me.

It's not. It's a modified version of the regular Flash Player which Adobe develops together with Google (or more likely: Google requests certain features or changes and Adobe implements them).
