Hello,

sorry to disturb you but could you tell what kind of licence is actually used for your firmware and controller ?

Could it be possible to sell it ?

Thanks a lot.

Hi Ilkinan, even a cursory look at the source code reveals that every single file specifies clearly that the Polargraph project is released under the GPL v3 license.

https://github.com/euphy/polargraphcontroller/blob/master/polargraphcontroller.pde#L7-L10
https://github.com/euphy/polargraph_server_a1/blob/master/polargraph_server_a1.ino#L4

Selling of GPL'd software is encouraged, but actually selling something that is available for free is a retailing challenge rather than a legal one! Source code must also be made available as per the GPL. What is usually sold is the promise of technical support.
