http://www.st.com/stm-32discovery is the URL given conspicuously on the Discovery Kit packaging - at least twice.

On that page, it says,

"This is an evaluation product with the purpose to evaluate the STM32 microcontroller. Before installing and using the product, please accept the EVALUATION PRODUCT LICENSE AGREEMENT"

And this Licence Agreement says, in bold,

"You warrant to ST that the Evaluation Product will be used and managed solely and exclusively in a laboratory by skilled professional employees of Yours with proven expertise in the use and management of such products"

So this licence specifically prohibits use by amateurs and hobbyists!!

Do ST specially select their legal team for its foot-shooting ability?!!
