mumble meetings:
2018-04-08
Agenda:
 * We need to plan to the test structures on the first mask set
 * LWN -Article

- How open do we want to go -> "as open as possible"
    patents to defend yourself
    try to make everyone play nice
    need to find a license
    Enforcement is an issue
    we have a lawyer onboard who helps us!
    
CMOS patent: https://patents.google.com/patent/US3356858
Various Options:
 *  idea to hand over patents to a foundation to keep it save
   * makes us more agile
   *  can lawsuits be funded 
 * Let's run it as a commercial business. Only in this way can we grow and support the OSH community sustainably

License and transpararency is more important than patents

TODO:
    document HK setup what we can do
    MVP to show possibilities 
        First mask set
        Congress as marker
    Long term goal: help others get started (by providing documentation)

Licenses:
 * dual licenses
   * code quality needs to better for free one on (github) to make it attractive to play nice on free code
 * viral elements? (compare CC SA or GPL vs BSD)
 * Verification of product via license

Target audience:
 * more small players/startups etc
 * less the big players who have established process (they get disturbances)
