Last Thursday, Elon Musk made a huge announcement regarding Tesla’s patents. Now, all of Tesla’s are public and can be used by anyone with good intention. According to Musk, our earth is suffering from severe climate change, which is also affecting different parts of the world. In order to save the earth, Musk took this decision.
Musk made this announcement through an official blog post. He made it clear that the company will not issue any lawsuit against those who use its patented technology with good purpose.
According to Musk, they do not have any competition from non-Tesla electric cars. Rather, they are worried about a large number of gasoline cars being produced by the world’s factories every day.
The day when Musk made this announcement is worth noting. The announcement was made on the same day when a Chinese national was driven to the prison for stealing an important patent for Project Titan, which is Apple’s aspiring project. This project also includes the concept of self-driving cars.
Musk believes that keeping patients as a secret is not a good practice anymore. It just chokes the progress and gives power to the ones in the legal profession. So, there is nothing left for inventors in the world if this practice continues.
Ideas Are Above Implementation
In this world, ideas are more valuable than the implementation. Many inventors in the world do not get any attention just because they are not among the top rulers of the market. But, Musk’s announcement of making all patents of Tesla public is a huge welcome to new inventors and entrepreneurs of the world. Anyone can use its patented technology without any issues for a good cause.
Back in 2018, Musk also provided the source code for Tesla Model S/X. It contained the system image on Nvidia Tegra-based infotainment system and Tesla Autopilot platform used in the electric cars.
