Accelerator board project: Buffee now Closed Source
According to the developers of the turbo card 'Buffee' (amiga-news.de reported) in their latest blog entry, the project which started as open source under a non-commercial Creative Commons license will now be continued completely closed source.

Up to about version 0.4 of the Buffee project, both the hardware and the newly developed Buffee-PJIT firmware were completely accessible online. The developers had clearly indicated that under the existing license, the project could be studied and ported to one's own hobby boards, but could not be used commercially under any circumstances. There were obvious violations of this, so the developers decided to stop publishing details. They are aware that this does not prevent cloning, but at least makes it more difficult.

The Buffee hardware would remain closed source until the design was abandoned. The corresponding page on 'Open Source Hardware Lab' is no longer available (dr)
