They claim to be open source friendly.

I note the A13 retails for about $4, so potentially anyone
can make a similar device.

Didn't order one though - $9 for the CPU and $20 for the shipping!!!

I emailed them to suggest they do rewards of x5, x10, x50, x100 packs
of their $9 board because at those prices, they are perfect replacements
for Arduino on more heavy handed jobs.
