Open Source Hardware (OSHW) Draft Definition version 0.4

Open Source Hardware (OSHW) Draft Definition version 0.4 is up!


Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.

  1. I still don’t like the discrimination against persons clause 7: “The license must not discriminate against any person or group of persons.” Discriminate on the basis of what? National origin, religion, past misconduct?

  2. @roy – you do not like an non-discrimination clause?

  3. Roy, the discrimination clause is generalized and the “based on any criteria” is implied, at least the way I read it.

    It basically means that “once you release under these terms, you cannot deny any person use within the boundaries of the definition.”

  4. I think he’s saying the wording is too vague. I was going to agree, but after thinking about it you’d be quite hard pressed to nail down precisely _which_ attributes discrimination against is _bad_ (for me; Age, Race, Sex, Gender, Sexual Orientation, Religious Belief (as opposed to religious practice), Political Ideology, Nationality, umm… Height, etc.).

    You’d end up with so much discussion as to whether it’s discrimination to be against characteristic ‘X’, that it’d dominate everything else unnecessarily.

    I quite like the section 8 “8. No Discrimination Against Fields of Endeavor”, and it’s much the same. Rather than lay out specific exemptions, the broad definition is more useful. Don’t want your project used on nukes? No problem, but you don’t get to call it fully open source hardware.

    Cheers,
    Gavin.

    P.S. Love the captcha LadyAda!

  5. Yes, I think the discrimination against persons clause 7 is too vague.

  6. @roy – why aren’t you posting this in the open source hardware forums and/or making the clause you think is to vague more specific?
