This license document covers hardware and software developed by OSOP, S.A. and Raspberry Shake data sharing services.
In the interest of promoting seismology among citizen scientists, those OSOP-made software components that fall under the OSOP Raspberry Shake Client-Side Software License are available at no additional cost to hobbyists for personal use and school teachers for educational use. Any individual, institute, university or company that intends to use a Raspberry Shake product within a government earthquake monitoring, scientific research and/ or commercial setting (e.g., Geophysical Institutes, NSF-funded grant proposals, oil and gas or mining companies, all other companies, etc.), should purchase one license per Raspberry Shake board.
A special note for hobbyists and school teachers: Please enabled data sharing. We really want to see you become a part of the Raspberry Shake community which is quickly becoming the largest citizen scientist earthquake detection network in the world. Thank you for your support!

The Raspberry Shake comes with a number of licensed and unlicensed software components. Software components that fall under the “OSOP Raspberry Shake Client-Side Software License” are denoted by (*) in the list below:
Raspberry Shake Software Components include:
Most licensed modules are delivered as hex/ binaries that run on the Raspberry Shake board and Raspberry Pi computer. Note that SeedLink 2.6, SWARM, and heli_ewII are open-source software packages developed by Geofon and the USGS, respectively. They are free to download and use for all parties- private, personal, hobbyist, institutional or commercial.
The OSOP Raspberry Shake Client-Side Software License includes use of some web-based features such as data sharing and recent earthquake detection display. When data sharing is turned on, the data sharing happens through the ODF-MSG-ROUTER protocol via the centralized Raspberry Shake server. Server-side software elements such as the Zero Configuration Server (the server-side counter-component of the ODF-MSG-ROUTER) can be licensed separately, allowing a geophysical institute, for example, to create their own data sharing platform for Raspberry Shake. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for further details.
The Raspberry Shake is closed source. Reverse engineering of the Raspberry Shake or its components is strictly prohibited. Integration of the Raspberry Shake hardware into a company's other hardware products for resale is strictly prohibited.
When you choose to share your data with the Raspberry Shake Community Server by enabling the Data Sharing option in your Raspberry Shake’s web configuration, the data essentially enters a commons license where the data is freely available to all. As a hobbyist, we make it free for you to access, view and download data from your Raspberry Shake and our Raspberry Shake Community Server. That is to say, we pay the infrastructure and data transmission costs because a primary mission of the Raspberry Shake Project is to bring hobbyists and citizen scientists into the fold and spread love for seismology.
We will not use the data from your Raspberry Shake for an nefarious purposes, mostly just to tune the automatic earthquake detection algorithms, debug and generally improve Raspberry Shake for all users.
By choosing to share you data, you automatically accept the terms and conditions of the Raspberry Shake Data Sharing License and your hereby grant to OSOP, gempa and Gempa GeoServices, a perpetual, irrevocable, non-exclusive, worldwide, royalty-free license, with the right to sublicense, to copy, to reproduce, modify, translate, broadcast, perform, share, display, distribute, transmit, frame, republish, download, display, post, make a commercial use and commercially exploit, create derivative works, in any media now existing or hereafter developed, including without limitation on websites, in audio format, and in any print media format. You hereby waive any rights of publicity and privacy with respect to the shared data and any other legal or moral rights that might preclude OSOP, gempa or Gempa GeoServices’ use of the shared data or require your permission for OSOP, gempa or Gempa GeoServices to use the shared data. You agree not to assert any claim, whether based on tort, contract, or other legal theory, against OSOP, gempa or Gempa GeoServices or its sublicensees relating to Raspberry Shake or its sublicensees' use of the shared data, and you hereby release OSOP, gempa and Gempa GeoServices and its sublicensees from any such claims.
We appreciate you sharing your data and we will protect your identify. We strive to provide a rich experience for you through the Raspberry Shake Community Server and the many web, desktop and mobile applications it supports.
