Hi,

Depending on what software you are using for your setup, it may have its own license.

It is best to take a look at the license agreement that comes with the software that you plan to redistribute.

For the Smoothboard software, we have reselling opportunities for people like you who would like to sell the software with your hardware.

You can always contact us at admin at smoothboard.net

Regards,
Boon Jin

I would use whiteboard v3.0. lee chung published for free on his website, with his source code. This software uses the wiimote library that is licensed MS-PL (microsoft permissive license)

the ms-pl licence says:

(A) Copyright Grant-Subject to the Terms of this license, the license Including Conditions and limitations in section 3, Each contributor grants you a non-exclusive, worldwide, royalty-free copyright license to reproduce ITS contribution, prepare derivative works of Its contribution, and distribute STI Any contribution or create derivative works That You.

(B) Patent Grant-Subject to the Terms of this license, the license Including Conditions and limitations in section 3, Each contributor grants you a non-exclusive, worldwide, royalty-free license under licensed patents to make STI, Have made, use , Sell, offer for sale, import, and / or Otherwise dispose of Its contribution in the software or derivative works of the contribution in the software.

I think that should have no problems in marketing the combo product in a educational estabishment, I mean, the IR pen, tripod wiimote installation and capacitation, for example.

is it factible?

thanks and greetings
