Ford Opens Patents, Following Tesla's Lead

Postby X-Hunter » Fri May 29, 2015 10:37 am

Since the Press Release forum seems to be rather barren, it may as well be a new home to the important press releases related to Alternate Energy, Off-Grid and LED technologies.

With that said, Ford has recently opened up it's Electric Vehicle patents to the public. As some may recall, Tesla did this back in 2014 and gained widespread praise for the decision.

This strikes me, however, as an overt grab at new minds. By opening up to the public, they'll actively find new R&D Staff to hire on with experience in their patent fields already, in addition to maintaining a licensing cost for use of their patented tech.

Discuss.
