Freeduino is a collaborative open-source project to replicate and publish a completely open version of the Arduino project's closed PCB design. The resulting Freeduino Eagle SCH, BRD and Gerber production files will allow users to create boards that are 100% functionally, electrically and physically compatible with Arduino Decimilia board.
I was under the assumption that Arduino projects PCB design was already open??
Otherwise, the Freeduino people would be thieves.
But since there are no restrictions on the name, who can tell for sure...
QuoteBut since there are no restrictions on the name, who can tell for sure...Has been a trademark for a while now.
I was talking about the "Freeduino" name, not "Arduino"...
I was under the impression that the name "Arduino" was denied trademark status (something about it being a common first name or something?) - has this changed (recently)?
