Topic: ATMega8U2 VID/PID etc (Read 2580 times) previous topic - next topic

Would it be legitimate for me to make a product that includes the ATMega8U2 running the firmware from the Arduino UNO, unmodified, and sell it? Or would I have to also go off and purchase my own VID/PID? This topic seems remarkably complicated in my cursory background research so far. I'm hoping I can get some straight answers and discussion here!

Are you building an Arduino derivative?

Does this help answer your question...

The two paragraphs containing the word "derivative" seem to be relevant.

Or this...

There is a discussion here about the USB IDs..

This may be too old but it should give you a feel for the Arduino developers' intent...
