Getting a USB Vendor ID ?
We got a usb ID from the OpenMoko project, read more.
Seems to be quite expensive, getting a vendor ID is about 2,000 U$ for a two year period, so be must find a cheaper alternative.
The USB-IF logos may be used only in conjunction with products that have passed USB-IF compliance testing and are currently on the USB Integrator’s List. This requires that the company be assigned a USB vendor ID number. Atmel’s USB vendor ID is 03EBh.
The usb.org allows chip manufacturers to give their clients a PID (to be used with the chip manufacturers VID) for use with that manufacturers chips. Some manufaturers that do this are:
Microchip: request form
So, what to do for now ? i'll wait for an answer from a Atmels to know if they can give me a product id.
It also means we can't use the USB logo on our website.
According to USB IDs, maybe we can use the same id as the AVR example HID Keyboard

Companies who sell USB vendor id / product ids for USB development:
Maybe i can get a vid/pid from the Linux Foundation, see this:http://libusb.6.n5.nabble.com/USB-VID-PID-for-open-source-projects-tp4259925p4259935.html
in the worst case i will use the
VID/PID values of 0x0000/0x0000
