Legal/Copyright issues?

Hello, me with 2 friend are working on a localization project with several sensors and we are planning to buy and use either DWM1001 or DWM1001-DEV devices on it as well. If we manage to get a proper working device we are planning to sell it. Will there be any legal or copyright issues? If there will be, how do we solve that problem? My english isnt that good and couldnt find information about this on the website.

Copyright issues will depend on exactly what software/firmware you end up using but there shouldn’t be a problem.

In terms of other legal issues, you have all of the normal regulatory requirements that apply for any electronics that you wish to sell as an end product.
Since the DWM1001 is sold as a module for inclusion in a product and the DWM1001-DEV is a development kit not an end product they are exempt from this requirement but if you make a product that uses them you won’t be.
As noted here: DWM1001 Now FCC, IC and CE Certified! the DWM1001 has approval as a pre-certified radio module for certain countries, that means that within those countries you only have to do the standard testing and certification required for non-radio products, something that massively simplifies things. Outside of those countries getting approval will involve a lot more paperwork.
