Jeremy from Atomos officially said they are paying a license fee to RED for capturing to ProRes RAW on their devices. And, as Shawn stated, BRAW is strictly not a RAW format because they do a partial debayer before encoding to BRAW.

I think the term "RAW" is being used pretty loosely these days. When talking with some colorists at Films@59 (a very high-profile post house in Bristol) a few months ago, they surprised me by saying that they did not even consider REDRAW as a true RAW format. But then again they also don't consider Resolve as a valid tool for their color workflows. They use Baselight and Flame Premium on Supermicro Linux boxes. I guess it's all in the eye of the beholder.
