Did you even read what I wrote?

If you mean being able to use it without paying _any kind_ of fee,
that's another thing.

Royalty: a sum of money paid to a patentee for the use of a patent or
to an author or composer for _each_ copy of a book sold or for _each_
public performance of a work.

And about your last sentence.. As I said:

>>It might be worth trying to contact RAD and see if this could be a
walkable road.
