Invention, Intellectual Properties, and Business Models

Planning for after FabAcademy



Plan for dissemination of final project

After FabAcademy I intend to demonstrate the skills I learned and pass them along to students in Africa by sharing the video that I made (link below) and sharing my FabAcademy website.

The business model I intend to use is a subscription based model, and the service is more around disseminating the methodologies than selling/marketing the actual product.


I plan to use the creative commons licence for my project and to copyright my code. The creative commons licence gives every person and organization in the world a free, simple, and standardized way to grant copyright permissions for creative and academic works; ensure proper attribution; and allow others to copy, distribute, and make use of those works. I plan to use the CC BY version of the licence with the following terms:

CC BY: This license allows reusers to distribute, remix, adapt, and build upon the material in any medium or format, so long as attribution is given to the creator. The license allows for commercial use.

CC BY includes the following elements: BY – Credit must be given to the creator
