I was thinking if one of us becomes a millionaire
then we could finally produce lowRISC SoC or w/e is the best offering
at the time.
Obviously we couldn't have the final designs published as crazy
permissive MIT license, we can't have the likes of apple ripping it off.
I'm thinking could probably have a reverse GPL dual-licensing, such as
by disallowing OEM binary blobs on the hardware, unless some licensing
fee is paid out. Can probably make it similar to the license fee of
other proprietary offerings.
However it seems that even with whatever license we make, it hits the
wall of China and crumbles to ashes.
So it would seem would have to hire or buy a Chinese law firm to help
make the official Chinese version of the GPL and related licenses, get
some Chinese GPL devs on board and then just start suing violators.
Though to be honest I know very little about the Chinese situation,
but think it makes sense for us to start making more of a gameplan of
how to deal with the new economic world leader as America fades into
Thanks in advance for your insights,
