Sorry, I should have been more specific, the rewritten algorithm would not be 
the same, but it would be a derivative work and still covered by copyright of 
the original work.

It’s possible that the current license allows derivative works to be licensed 
under a compatible license that would allow you do to what you need to do? I 
guess to for any suggestions we would need to know what the original use 
license is.
