I own a startup company that manufactures PCB's. We decided to release them under the GPLv3 license to eliminate the hassles of patents and so forth. Another factor is that we use code on the microcontrollers that comes from the open source community worldwide.
The question is : Is it legal to sell a GPLv3 licensed PCB to a company that has strict distributor territories ? Strict distributor territories meaning a companies distributor cannot sell to another distributors customer, no matter the circumstances.
