OSHW Licenses

by westfw on Fri Aug 11, 2017 4:06 am

What's the latest scoop on licenses appropriate to Open Source Hardware?
I found http://www.ladyada.net/library/openhard ... cense.html
But that's about a decade old these days :-(
https://www.oshwa.org/faq/ mentions the same licenses, plus GPL (which doesn't really seem applicable to HW) and CC (whose site says isn't applicable to HW either.)
Hasn't there been any progress in this area?
