Friday Factoid: Tesla Motors Allows Others To Use Their Patented Inventions

Tesla Motors recently announced it will allow others to use all of its patented inventions in a open source inspired environment in order to create “a common, rapidly-evolving technology platform” to make, sell and service electric cars.  One intended benefit of this new policy is to incentivize other companies to share the costs of building and maintaining an expansive network of electric car charging stations.    Sources: Telsa Motors and Businessweek Jon Wachs websiteIf you have any questions regarding the content of this communication, please contact Jonathan R.
