This chapter is from the book


By now, you should understand how to make a derivative of open source hardware, and be aware of the issues and benefits surrounding derivatives. You can create your own derivatives of the Blinky Buildings kit using the source files highlighted in this chapter and available at www.bit.ly/blinkybuildings. If you create a Blinky Buildings derivative, please email me at amgibb@gmail.com so that I can link to your building as well!

Remember to read the licenses of the original creators when making derivatives and follow the license terms. The most important issue that open source hardware faces with respect to derivatives is giving correct attribution without copying a trademarked logo or name. You can help open source hardware become a stronger brand by taking care to give attribution without infringing on another person’s trademark.
