I am not going to get in the storm, but I will state that the Arduino team's enforcement of trademark is at bets lax, they tend to pick and choose based on the buddy system, and thats frankly not right.An example I like to point to is the operator of http://www.avr-developers.com, originally it had the Arduino name in the url, but very quickly after the trademark went into play they told him to change the domain, of a site that was giving away arduino core files for damn near every AVR out there, to the community for the community.Meanwhile the Sparkfun Arduino Main board, which is a repackaged Uno, but points people to use their fourms, and claims a 2010 Sparkfun electronics copyright is just fine, because "we like sparkfun, and they have done a lot to help the community"https://www.sparkfun.com/products/11023Guess this guy just pissed someone off before they had their coffee
thats frankly not right.
For years we manufactured the ARDUINO in Italy...
This statement (if made by the two people who supposedly worked for the contractor) may be technically correct but it is misleading,
In a court of law, are you required to tell the truth or are you required to not mislead?
There's no mention of "misleading" AFAIK,
