Open Invention Network Adds Mobile

The Open Invention Network (OIN) announced this month that it has added 18 mobile Linux packages, including core Android libraries and Dalvik, to its landscape of royalty-free patent cross-licenses. These latest additions follow on the heels of expanded coverage for KVM, GIT, OpenJDK, and WebKit, added earlier this year.

The Open Invention Network enables royalty-free cross licensing of patents covering the Linux System, as defined at http://www.openinventionnetwork.com/pat_linuxdef.php. The recent additions expand that definition, which already extended far beyond the Linux Kernel.  The current Open Invention Network license is available at http://www.openinventionnetwork.com/pat_license_agreement.php.
