    Hi Bethel Goka,

    Thanks for your question. I'm afraid we can't speak to the regulations of all open sourced licenses. However, I would encourage you to make sure that the open source license you're considering using allows you to release modifications and software products.

    Per the rules: " A Maker may submit a Submission that includes the use of open source software or hardware, provided the Maker complies with applicable open source licenses and, as part of the Submission, creates software that enhances and builds upon the features and functionality included in the underlying open source product. By entering the Hackathon you represent, warrant, and agree that your Submission meets these requirements."

    Best,
    Serena
