In response to this osnews post

well you can try asking intel legal department
about alpha instruction set,
From what i know is open , Yep you could walk on gray legal area (towards black)
Nobody stops me to create an open core project
Let's call it OmegaCPU for start

Omega CPU - Alpha like clone
Implement Alpha cpu instruction set

It will be based on open risc core (64bit version)
First steps will be building full emulator
then working on hardware part
