Apart from this item and whether or not this is somebody from Stardot ... what's the policy about selling hardware that has been developed here? Is it allowed to be sold by others?

Personally I think it's not appropriate to sell other peoples intellectual properties without permission unless it is sold as part of a complete system.

Yes duikkie said he was happy for people to do whatever with SMARTSPI - although I'd hope that he was asked. In so far as the bridge board between the SD and user port, that's public domain. The price isn't outrageous so I doubt anyone's going to be making enough to live on from selling them :D

Ok, I'm the one selling these SD card drives. I did ask Duikkie's permission to use the SMART SPI ROM and he told me it was in the public domain. So there are no issues there. As someone else pointed out, they are reasonably priced and I'm not making a great deal of profit from them. I'm sorry if some of you have a problem with this - but I have made sure that I have only used public domain information to make these modules.
If anyone is interested I am developing a WiFi enabled version of this SD card drive- when complete, I will put the firmware in the public domain for any of you to use.

the SD card is, Mark / RetroClinic has done it a few months ago, & works on his dataCentre.
just needs a file on the SD card which he put up, then just refresh, and your new files fly through the air 8)

Just to be clear, I don't have a problem with these being sold, I was just curious who was selling them.

They look good, I'd been thinking of doing something similar to Lazarus's SD card that fits under the beeb, but these are probably close enough. I may buy one.

I think it would be nice if you credited the original creators in the listing.

I think it's a great idea. :)

Pulling together a solution for the less technical that works pretty much out of the box and isn't stupidly over-priced. :D

Edit: Just to be clear, I wasn't implying that others should feel obliged to do this, or anyone else that does do this should feel slighted. :shock:
