This topic has likely been beat to a pulp, but here we go again.

 

 I'm developing a product using LUFA.  This USB device will never be connected to an external USB host..  It is essentially a Win 10 laptop with the internal USB ports driving my LUFA based firmware design.  So the USB will never conflict with anything outside the laptop 'box' and no USB logo needs to be shown anywhere on the product.

 

So, if I use the available Atmel/LUFA VID/PID numbers for this item, am I still on the hook for the USB.org license fee?  My gut says yes, but wanted to hear from others who understand the licensing in more detail.

Thanks

Jim

My gut says no.

You apparently have no contractual relationship with the USB folks.

Neither trademark nor copyright should be an issue.

What else is there?

if that port's USB hub isn't a hub for external USB ports; can differentiate by USB HCI.

No answer ... an alternative for OSS and OSHW :
