What is the license of work greated with Fritzing?


#1

i have found this license file:

fritzing-0.9.2b.linux.AMD64/parts/svg/core/LICENSE.txt:

All graphics and documentation of Fritzing are licensed under
Creative Commons Attribution-ShareALike 3.0 Unported.

This means that you may publish circuits and diagrams that you create with
Fritzing and that use these graphics – as long as you credit us, and
publish your works under the same license.
A credit can be as simple as “this image was created with Fritzing.”

so if iam interpreting this right i am not allowed to embed a image of for example the breadboard view in an closed source document?!

thanks for clarifying this :slight_smile:

You can embed fritzing image(s) in a closed source project. We just ask for you run the Fritzing name if you use any pictures from inside the breadboard view. A simple, made using Fritzing giving credit to Fritzing somewhere in your project ie; credits section. or an embedded/embossed fritzing logo on the picture(s) used, that would also work. If you export this said image from inside fritzing, this credit is already embedded in the lower right-hand corner.

See Fritzing’s FAQ
http://fritzing.org/faq/
Half way down. What about the circuits that I created with Fritzing?

Hope this helps answer your question.

Can I use the PCB made by Fritzing to grant my own licence, such as robot controller board, and produce it for selling?
