We don't make hardware. I think you need to ask the SD Card Association about
that. Wikipedia says:
Royalties for SD/SDIO licenses are imposed for manufacture and sale of
memory cards and host adapters (1000 USD per year plus membership at 1500
USD/year) but SDIO cards can be made without royalties and MMC host adapters
do not require a royalty.
