I plan to release any design I come up with to whomever wants it. As is,
warranty, etc., of course. I even thought that if I get PCB's made up I
sell them at cost to anyone who wants to build up their own. (The volume
make it cheaper for me, too.)
I don't know much about patents, but I would be afraid that if the design
not patented it could be pateneted out from under us by someone else.
an advantage in that copyrights are simpler/cheaper to get than patents.
I would guess that many of the people on this list who would be interested
working on a design have signed agreements with thier employers giving the
employers rights any designs. Anyone care to comment on this?
