Linux patent defense group expands open-source protection

Filed under
OSS

The Open Invention Network (OIN) has significantly expanded and updated the Linux System technologies covered by its protective network of royalty-free cross-licenses. Over 700 new software packages–including popular packages such as Kernel Virtual Machine (KVM), Git, OpenJDK, and WebKit–will now receive coverage. In addition, coverage for over 1,000 existing software packages has been updated. Soon, the OIN will also expand its protection over Linux-related mobile operating systems such as Android, MeeGo, Tizen, and webOS.

Patents owned by Open Invention Network are available royalty-free to any company, institution or individual that agrees not to assert its patents against the OIN’s broad Linux Definitions.
