Abstract

Italian Abstract: La logica Open Hardware, solo parzialmente sovrapponibile a quella Open Software, presenta, agli occhi dello specialista di Proprietà Intellettuale, alcune peculiarità concettuali e tecniche che possono a prima vista lasciare sorpresi e/o perplessi. Ciononostante, un’analisi globale delle problematiche rilevanti nonché dell’universo in cui si muovono gli inventori Open Hardware ci mostra come tali peculiarità, se conosciute e sapute gestire, non sollevano eccessive preoccupazioni.

English Abstract: The Open Hardware logic, that only partially overlaps with theOpen Software one, has some technical and conceptual peculiarities that can leave perplexed at first. Nevertheless, an overall analysis of the relevant issues and of the universe in which Open Hardware inventors operate shows how these peculiarities, if known and well-managed, do not raise undue concern.
