I'm trying out OshPark for some prototype boards.
My question is, if you submit a PCB job via OshPark.com, does that PCB end up being "shared" to others, i.e. becoming open source hardware?
In other words, would I see my PCBs for sale at the manufacturer's site without my permission?
I hope not.
No! Definitely not. Although my purpose is to help people designing open source hardware, a lot of people (and companies) submit closed source designs. They're only shared with the fab (in Illinois), and only then as one small part of a much larger panel.
As a service, I'll sometimes premake boards and list them on store.oshpark.com in single quantities for communities that are ordering a bunch of a single board, but only by the request of or permission of the designer.
