"Musk Opens Tesla Technology to the World"

"PALO ALTO, Calif. -- Tesla CEO Elon Musk has taken down the patents posted at the California headquarters of his luxury electric car company. Instead the innovative CEO wants to allow other electric vehicle manufacturers to use his technology to advance sustainable mobility worldwide.

'Yesterday, there was a wall of Tesla patents in the lobby of our Palo Alto headquarters. That is no longer the case. They have been removed, in the spirit of the open source movement, for the advancement of electric vehicle technology,' Musk said Thursday.

Musk declared that Tesla will not bring patent lawsuits against anyone who, in good faith, wants to use Tesla technology."
