Proprietary blobs - is it legal to copy them and use them in my fork of android?

Hi,

I have a legal question. Lets say - im building an android os fork (something like lineageos) and i need to use proprietary blobs in device tree (Qualcomm to be precise).

My question is - can i use them legally? Am i allowed to get them from other vendor's OS, copy them and use them in my android? Can such android be legally published on the net? If it is legal what limits do i have? For example can i build commercial os on basis of such solution?

Could someone link me any qualcomm documents about this topic?

Thanks and best regards, K
