Hello...hope this is the right forum section to post to.

I've heard from friends that Arduino offers a dual licensing scheme (GPL and proprietary) but I'm having a tough time finding documentation of this on the main site....can anyone point me in the right direction?

Also, just out of curiosity....how does Arduino monitor proprietary uses?  i.e. what prevents John Smith from taking Arduino hardware, closing the technology, making improvements, and then selling it commercially?  How would Arduino ever find out?  I've always wonder about that.  it seems easy to track with code, but hardware seems a little more difficult to track.

Thanx in advance.
