FreeRTOS Legal Information

Posted by mutty00 on July 2, 2017

Hello,

I'm using FreeRTOS on a commercial product. My project uses FreeRTOS code and proprietary code. No project source code are distributed outside my company.

Is there something that I've to do in order to fully respect FreeRTOS license agreements in this kind of situation ???

Someone tell me that I have to notify ( for example on user manual ) that product uses FreeRTOS inside. Is it correct ? I've to give other informations ?

Thank you.

Who told you you had to notify somebody? The FreeRTOS license has a linkage exception that says when FreeRTOS is linked into an application the application can be distributed under the terms of your choice, which means without effecting how any other software you link into the application is licensed, and without imposing any restrictions or requirements on you (so no requirement to state anything). 'of your choice' means you decide.
