so how should i proceed from here?

You should be _concerned_ with what copyright-check helped you discover. Even if dislike how it works and later trash that routine.

- remove the binary blob from this file? (not so good as the copyright
check relies on copyright_hints being an exact copy of the generated
copyright_newhints (which obviously contains the blob))

If you mean add build routines to strip the Apple-copyrighted and non-licensed part from binary packages? Then we still ship it with the source package which is bad.

- tell CDBS to not copyright check certain files (how?)

You don't want to do that in this case, as that would be silencing a real problem without fixing it.

But the way to do that would be to set (or rather extend) DEB_COPYRIGHT_CHECK_IGNORE_REGEX (see /usr/share/cdbs/1/rules/utils.mk what it is by default and adapt from there - but i you copy from that file then remember to change ?= to = or it won't work: I've lost many hours missing that detail).

- file a bug-report in CDBS that it should never create binary-blobs in the copyright_newhints?

That's a different issue: changing CDBS does not make these files free.

But yes, feel free to file a bug-report if you feel it is wrong of CDBS to scan non-ASCII chunks, or whatever it is you feel is wrong now (sure is to discuss it in a CDBS bugreport than on this list IMHO).

not to forget of course:
- - exclude the images files alltogether from the orig.tar.gz
- - tell upstream to fix the files in question

Yes, that's the proper approach!

...and until then, strip it from source, as we cannot redistribute it as-is.
