Public Mint joins the Open Invention Network
We join the biggest network for defense against aggressive use of patents and reaffirm our commitment to fair innovation.
We’re happy to announce that Public Mint has officially joined the Open Invention Network, an organization formed and funded by IBM, Red Hat, SUSE, Sony, NEC, Philips, Google, and Toyota to foster a safe patent environment for developers, users and supporters of Linux and Open Source based software solutions.
This means Public Mint joins the efforts to prevent patent aggression, which is the aggressive use of patents that may jeopardize work or limit opportunities for developers and companies worldwide.
Patent aggression can be a very troubling and costly matter to deal with and, if left unchecked, could make it difficult to maintain an open collaborative environment.
Advancing collaboration in open source development
As an active member of the Linux Foundation’s Hyperledger project, our new partnership reaffirms Public Mint’s commitment to an open and collaborative approach with the Linux open source community.
OIN is the world’s largest patent non-aggression community ever assembled, with over 3,400 members from around the world who are invested in the creation, use or support of Linux and Open Source. Even Microsoft, historically the biggest antagonist of Linux and Open Source, is now part of the network.
Public Mint joins the likes of Cisco Systems, Ford, AT&T, SAP, Fujitsu, Hitachi, Huawei, Alibaba Group, Baidu, Wipro, BMW, Twitter, Facebook, and Mozilla to support the principle of non-aggression for the Linux/Open Source ecosystem.
