Elon Musk CEO of Tesla Motors and SpaceX just announced that Tesla Motors which holds at least 133 Patents will be allowed for use by anyone with fair intentions.
Tesla will not initiate patent lawsuits against anyone who, in good faith. wants to use our technology.
In times when innovation is Rare and Costly, Elon Musk has set a extraordinary example by letting this happen and he has a greater vision for doing this, simply say. He wants all Or any of the competitors/manufacturers to use the technology that they have developed by intellect, sweat and money.
Here’s a Pic of the wall that held the patents
A good Close-up
The most humbling thing about Elon Musk is that he is completely Okay with other competitors sharing the pie of the market, as he bravely accepts that they alone can not satisfy the needs for good future cars which have a positive impact on earth.
I strongly believe that Elon and the stakeholders in Tesla Motors are equally to be thanked in this decision, as in todays capitalist environment this is a brave move.
Lets just see if other’s take some learning.
