Hi Debian-legal,

Hope this email find you well.

This is zhikang Pan, our company wants to use Debian on our robot product, which will be sold. So do we need open source for the kernel, Robot Operating System framework, and applications on this robot product? We actually don't want open source core code because there might be commercial benefits involved.

Thanks and best regards,

Zhikang Pan


you can, all packages included in Debian "main" are compliant with
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Debian_Free_Software_Guidelines which doesn't forbid to use Debian packages into a robot.

If you use packages from "non-free" branch, you have to read each /usr/share/doc/<non-free-package>/copyright to see if you can use it.
