The Open Invention Network Linux System Definition - Defining the Scope of Linux Patent Non-Aggression - Mirko Boehm, Endocode

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The Open Invention Network protects the Open Source ecosystem against litigation of software patents by acquiring patents and licensing them to entities. This networked, royalty-free non-aggression community can be joined by all entities and is defined by three pillars - the patents that are cross-licensed to participants, the community of licensees, and the field of use that is covered by the non-aggression pledge. Open Invention Network (OIN) focuses on protecting Linux, and the monitoring and inclusion of relevant Open Source technologies into it’s Linux System Definition is crucial to safeguarding “freedom to operate”, OIN’s central mission. The presentation will explain the nature of OIN’s non-aggression community, and introduce the Linux System Definition and the possibilities to contribute to its maintenance. The presenter is responsible for OIN's Linux System Definition.
