Hello.
Most custom ROMs today include a set of proprieatary blobs which are drivers for certain device hardware or proprieatary implementation of some device-specific feature developed by OEM(Original Equipment Manufacturer). So the question arises: is it legal to develop a custom ROM with use of proprieatary blobs? Is it legal to publish a custom ROM build which includes a proprietary blobs?

If you are able to prove infringement of someone's property, then turn to the forum administrator and point to the thread with the custom ROM. Certainly your request will be considered.
