My name is Frank Casey and I am writing to you on behalf of Open Invention
Network (OIN), an organization formed to support and protect the Linux
System and everyone who build or uses Linux related technology. I want to
take this opportunity to invite the KolibriOS team to join our community.
The OIN community helps support open innovation and deter patent
restriction around the Linux environment by providing an aggression "no fly
zone." Anyone can join by pledging nonaggression towards the other
community members and, in return, receives the same pledge from the others
as well as OIN's support if faced with aggression from third-parties. Our
goal is a future where patent aggression around Linux and its related
ecosystem is no longer acceptable.
There is no cost to join nor any other obligation. Today we have over 400
members from around the world who realized that patent issues pose a threat
to their freedom to innovate and wanted to support our efforts to keep
Linux open and free. Ubuntu, KDE, Gentoo, Mozilla, Hewlett-Packard, Cisco
Systems, and Google are a few of our members and we would be pleased to
have KolibriOS join too.
I hope you will give consideration to joining us and have attached for your
review a few items that speak to OIN. Also. if interested, you can go to
our website at http://www.openinventionnetwork.com
for more information.
