Rui: There are lots of cool artwork under a Cc: license on the wiki including 
the hardware schematics and :
Copyright are not an issue, please. No company will give you a blanket 
agreement to use their name as you please in any derivative product, but no 
company will deny fans the right to make T-Shirts with their name on it, if 
you show them specific T-Shirts design.

Arne: OpenMoko made it clear that they were not into selling derived products 
(I can't bother to find the post, that was a few months ago.).
