8 éve szállta meg Elon Muskot az open source szelleme

Címkék

8 éve publikálta Musk azt a bejelentést, amiben arról ír, hogy minden Tesla szabadalmuk "a miénk" (fogyasztóké/ügyfeleké/versenytársaké stb.):

Yesterday, there was a wall of Tesla patents in the lobby of our Palo Alto headquarters. That is no longer the case. They have been removed, in the spirit of the open source movement, for the advancement of electric vehicle technology.

[...]

Our true competition is not the small trickle of non-Tesla electric cars being produced, but rather the enormous flood of gasoline cars pouring out of the world’s factories every day.

We believe that Tesla, other companies making electric cars, and the world would all benefit from a common, rapidly-evolving technology platform. 

Technology leadership is not defined by patents, which history has repeatedly shown to be small protection indeed against a determined competitor, but rather by the ability of a company to attract and motivate the world’s most talented engineers. We believe that applying the open source philosophy to our patents will strengthen rather than diminish Tesla’s position in this regard.

A party is "acting in good faith" for so long as such party and its related or affiliated companies have not:

  • asserted, helped others assert or had a financial stake in any assertion of (i) any patent or other intellectual property right against Tesla or (ii) any patent right against a third party for its use of technologies relating to electric vehicles or related equipment;
  • challenged, helped others challenge, or had a financial stake in any challenge to any Tesla patent; or
  • marketed or sold any knock-off product (e.g., a product created by imitating or copying the design or appearance of a Tesla product or which suggests an association with or endorsement by Tesla) or provided any material assistance to another party doing so.

 Kérdés, hogy mit minősít a Tesla knock-off terméknek. Hol lesz a határ, ahonnan szerintük egy gyártó elektromos autója már másolja vagy imitálja a Tesla termékek megjelenését. Ez azért elég képlékeny szabály.

Én meg már azt hittem, hogy a kommunizmusé :)
