Why can't I have uncompressed cdng anymore?

Or anyone else, for what that matter.

If I understood the stupid lawsuits RED is throwing around, they have the copyright on "compressed raw" ...... ok fine, (no it's not. it's not fine at all.. how the hell someone can have copyright on a concept?)

So, why can't I have anymore uncompressed cdng in the latest camera firmware update? I have nothing against BM raw. I understand why people like it and want it.

Why can't those who cares only about the uncompressed cdng can't have it?
I know all the upside of a format as BM raw. I can concede that is "superior" if one's conviced of that. Still, why can't I have the choice of using a really heavy and a pain to work with format?

Honestly baffled..

I don't think it's that simple, though. BRAW can be compressed in camera. I'm not aware of any legal challenge to that.
