Abbiamo parlato in diversi post della lotta tra Arduino.cc e Arduino.org.
Abbiamo avuto modo di analizzare le ragioni che hanno portato alla creazione del nuovo brand Genuino.
Alla fine dello scorso anno, sembrava che Arduino e Genuino avessero trovato un accordo. Qualcosa è stato fatto dopo questo riavvicinamento, ma non molto.

Ma ora si apre una nuova era!
Massimo Banzi è tornato sul trono e BCMI, la società fondata insieme a David Cuartielles, David Mellis e Tom Igoe, co-fondatori di Arduino, annuncia di aver acquisito al 100% la proprietà di Arduino AG, la società che possiede tutti i marchi Arduino.

Ecco il comunicato stampa che ne da l’annuncio.
