Quote ” 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.
Tesla Motors was created to accelerate the advent of sustainable transport. If we clear a path to the creation of compelling electric vehicles, but then lay intellectual property landmines behind us to inhibit others, we are acting in a manner contrary to that goal. Tesla will not initiate patent lawsuits against anyone who, in good faith, wants to use our technology.”
Yes this is someone that has understood that to improve our planet, our futur, it’s better to share with everyone in order to progress, to improve the development of new technology.
The only problem in all of this is that I don’t personnaly believe that electric cars will solve our pollution problem.
Am I the only one who think that until we have a way to produce electricity in a real ecologic way, to push people to use electricity is useless ?
How do we produce electricity today ? Nuclear power plant, coal or petroleum power plant are the most used and solar or wind alternative don’t produce enough to cover the need in energy to fill in all the electric cars of the futur.
But I thank you mrfor this gesture to improve our futur. Let’s hope that these acts will also help the research on how to create electricity less polluting. 🙂
