I don't think that George is writing a webcam chipset driver.  He
mentions that he is running the AT90USB1287 chipset in host mode,
which suggests that he has plugged an existing USB webcam into a board
with an AT90USB1287 chip and is trying to read the data from the
camera using the chip.  Here's what he said:

"I am trying to read a global register of my webcam using ATMEL AVR
USB MCU[AT90USB1287]. The MCU has detected the camera and allocated
pipes and is running in the host mode."

>From his e-mail, it does not sound like he's connecting a camera
sensor to the AT90USB1287 and using it as a USB slave, which is what
your comment suggests.  Also, his company (E-Smart Satellite and
Telecommunication) does not appear to be in the business of making
webcams.  Even if it were and George was making a camera, I see
nothing in George's e-mail to suggest he would be infringing the terms
of the GPL.  Please be careful to not jump to conclusions about how
someone will be using the GSPCA code.
