Some of you may remember that Tesla pledged not to assert its patents about e-vehicles against others in 2014. See Tesla’s blog (https://www.tesla.com/blog/all-our-patent-are-belong-you )
Does the pledge mean that Tesla will not assert patent related to non-vehicle products like electronic storage?
IAM recently published online article, saying that Tesla’s pledge “does not say anything about other technologies.” (https://www.iam-media.com/patents/elon-musk-does-not-hate-patents-and-teslas-famous-pledge-not-generous-it-seems) Unfortunately, I’m not subscribing IAM, so I cannot read the online article.
If IAM is correct, companies, which are current or potential competitors against Tesla, should be prepared for possible legal proceedings with or against Tesla.
