If the name Arduino is copyrighted, aren't these companies breaking copyright laws?How would I tell that an Arduino board has the blessing of whomever Arduino is?
I and other people use or will use the name Arduino in publications, etc. Should we place the conventional copyright symbol after the name (the letter c inside a circle)?
I tried to open the URL's you sent me but could not. I got a message "Session expired,etc."
So, are the Chinese who use the name Arduino on their boards not infringing on any copyright or trademark laws?
Could I use the name Arduino in my book without worrying about it?
