Toyota supports Linux patent protection group

Back in 1995, OIN was formed by IBM, Sony, Philips, Red Hat and Novell to defend the open source community operating system called Linux. Now OIN got more than 2000 members and Now! Toyota which is one of worlds largest car manufacturer, have joined the largest patent non-aggression community in history.

With this move, Toyota really shows how much respect they have regarding this open source OS. OINs plan now and then is to get Linux-related patents. Then it shares them royalty-free to any organization that agrees not to assert its patents against Linux or its applications. This organization have actually saved the open source community a lot then, but even much more important these days when companies fights about patents day and night.

So, in theory since Android is a Linux distro. Google should let it be totally free. It should be totally un-necessary to jailbreak Android devices. But then Google is so big that its hard to stop their move.

OIN project seems to have worked and now in 2016 it would be nice to see even more companies joining it.
