I recently received support from you to resolve a question about the software licenses for development in the beaglebone (BB), this was resolved, but reading in GoogleGroups I found a post about the commercial use of BB.
Ah that page brings up memories… For the first year or two of BeagleBone production there was a small shortage of the am335x processor.
Today Commercial use is pretty simple. “BeagleBone” is a trademark, so you can’t use that for anything. But you are free to use the BeagleBone product or design however you like, just don’t advertise it as a “BeagleBone”. As it’s ‘your’ design/product not BeagleBoard.org’s…
There are lots of commercial users today, you just don’t hear about them, as they are not allowed to advertise it as a “BeagleBone”…
BeagleBoard.org also provides “non-labeled” pcb design, so you can produce your own version of the board too, without worrying about the BeagleBone trademark (on the silkscreen of production pcb’s)…
Thanks for your quick answer and sorry, I was not clear when I said
What I wanted to say is that in the specifications of my product I am going to say that the board is a beaglebone only as a reference of what the hardware of my product has, will there be a problem with that?
In summary, do I not have to do anything else to be able to market a product that includes the hardware that beagleboard designs?
Thanks for your support @RobertCNelson, with this it has become more clear to me, so for my product it is best not to mention beaglebone or beagleboard.org and I could search for a pcb some “non-labeled” pcb design
Just a question, how could I get an “non-labeled” beaglebone? I was looking at beagleboard and couldn’t find any
