Fairwaves becomes OIN Licensee


Fairwaves has signed up to become a licensee of the Open Invention Network (OIN), providing it with royalty-free access to a growing patent portfolio that covers the Linux ecosystem and includes numerous mobile technologies.

Access to the defensive portfolio affords Fairwaves a measure of protection from the actions of patent trolls and those who would seek to attack or undermine the open-source ecosystem. We’re in great company, with founding companies including IBM, Sony and NEC, and licensees ranging from SMEs and smaller open source projects, to global tech giants and major open source projects.
