Who is your project for?¶
The idea making my project is to make it available for all fablabers and makers all around the world so that anyone who has the required tools and machinery could easily just download the design file and start making it also they can upgrade the design as long as they give credit for making the original one.
so this is why I chose Creative Common License which will fulfill my intention.
I’m not considering marketing the project where it gonna be an open source as stated in the license.
The device itself need to be improved, still I need to search more on how effective the UV light I’m using is, also for the battery I need to develop an auto rechargeable station.

We can adopt one of their licenses by sharing on a platform,
