19. Invention, intellectual property and income


  • Develop a plan for dissemination of your final project,
  • prepare drafts of your summary slide (presentation.png, 1920x1080)
  • and video clip (presentation.mp4, 1080p HTML5, < ~minute, < ~10 MB)
  • and put them in your root directory


I want this project to serve as an inspiration for anyone who is interested into hydroponic gardening, and I hope that other people will improve it over time.

I plan to publish the 3D printable models on Thingiverse. Every other drawing should be available on my GitHub documentation.

Intellectual property

If first went to this online tool that helps choosing a creative commons licence.

As I don’t expect any reward for this project, I wanted to publish it in the public domain (using the CC Zero License).

Public domain

It should not be a problem as I designed everything myself, I have no other author to credit.

The terms and conditions of this license are explained here.

The concept would have ended up in the public domain anyway, so I guess it’s easier for everyone if it is published this way.
