Plus, the license we're using also contains the following clause, just in case we needed it (though I don't think we do): "If You create a Collective Work, upon notice from any Licensor You must, to the extent practicable, remove from the Collective Work any credit as required by clause 4(c), as requested. If You create a Derivative Work, upon notice from any Licensor You must, to the extent practicable, remove from the Derivative Work any credit as required by clause 4(c), as requested."
It basically means you can explicitly request that someone not credit you in a derivative work, even though the license ordinarily requires it. I'm not really sure why you'd use it either - maybe if someone created a derivative of your work that you hated so much that you didn't want anyone knowing it was based on something you did.
Sorry, I wasn't clear.That's actually part of the Creative Commons licenses and not something I necessarily think needs to or should be there, but that's what the license says, and that same clause is (I believe) in the licenses you're using for your works as well.
you know,I'm starting to think that the files and the Arduino name should BOTH be open to anyone who wants to use them
Someone could, otherwise, buy a thing with the word Arduino on it and be confused as to why its not working the way they expect or is incompatible with the software and then blame Arduino when really its that the clone is not compatible.
Otherwise, people ... who just want to sell out the community for a quick buck would have the right to use it as well.
