Dear Sirs,
with reference to CHAPTER 1 paragraph title: "Why it matters that Google Chose Arduino" it is written:
"When taking the reference design to make your own, you just need to credit the initial design team, but you don't need........"
Because I am interested to do my own board using the schematics of the main core of the Arduino Board ADK 2560, really I am interested to have answers to the following questions:
  1. - How can I CREDIT the initial design team?
  2. - Where can I and should I CREDIT the initial design team?
In general which are the real formal actions to perform in order to credit the initial Arduino design team so I can proceed to take advantage of the Open Hardware Creative Commons license?

I hope to have been clear in writing my question and thank You in advance

S. Sapia

Greetings S. Sapia

From Auduino FAQ, the second question (and answer) reads:

Quote:
What do you mean by open-source hardware?

Open-source hardware shares much of the principles and approach of free and open-source software. In particular, we believe that people should be able to study our hardware to understand how it works, make changes to it, and share those changes. To facilitate this, we release all of the original design files (Eagle CAD) for the Arduino hardware. These files are licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution Share-Alike license, which allows for both personal and commercial derivative works, as long as they credit Arduino and release their designs under the same license.
The Arduino software is also open-source. The source code for the Java environment is released under the GPL and the C/C++ microcontroller libraries are under the LGPL.
I assume then it means that when you release your design files, you have to release it under the same license. Furthermore, you could probably credit Arduino in your license/readme/whatever text file that goes along with the design files.

I hope I have been of some assistance.

Thanks a lot Daevor,
there is still a question relevant how to "credit Arduino", the question is simply this:
What should I do in order to credit Arduino? Should I write something to somebody or should I write something somewhere or what else should I do?

Thanks a lot anyway

regards

Greetings S. Sapia

I believe you merely make mention of Arduino in your readme/license file/copyright notice. Assuming you derive a piece of hardware from the Arduino Due Board, you could do something like this:

"This work is licensed under the Creative Commons Attribution Share-Alike license. Credit for the original work upon which this work is based is hereby attributed to Arduino, http://arduino.cc/en/Main/ArduinoBoardDue"

Otherwise you can just give their URL of their homepage http://arduino.cc.

The point is that you mention this within the same section/paragraph you mention your own copyright notice.

I hope that helps.

I did a bit more digging, and I think this is exactly what you are looking for.

I trust that helps.
