(Tesla - Electric) - '..in the spirit of the open source movement..' - Elon Musk CEO of Tesla Motors

<blockquote>'In the works apparently means “We’re open-sourcing everything,” because today, Elon Musk dropped that particular bombshell. In a blog post, the CEO of Tesla Motors declared that the company’s wall of patents had been taken down “in the spirit of the open source movement, for the advancement of electric vehicle technology.”

According to Musk, the reason behind the move is to spur development of EVs and the associated technologies; the company has explicitly stated that it “will not initiate patent lawsuits against anyone who, in good faith, wants to use our technology.” According to Musk, Tesla began its own practice of stockpiling patents out of fear that big car manufacturers might attempt to grind the company out of existence through lawsuits — instead, he writes “At best, the large automakers are producing electric cars with limited range in limited volume. Some produce no zero emission cars at all.”

Tesla, according to Musk, simply cannot meet this challenge alone and therefore is opening everything in the hopes of spurring further innovation and adoption in the EV market. Musk writes that Tesla’s strength and innovative business model are what will propel it forward, not any reliance on patent litigation or licensing models.'
