Software patents are a threat to entrepreneurs everywhere. Even if you think they are not allowed in your country, patent offices across Europe still issue them and gaining certainty that they don’t apply to you is so costly that the threat of litigation is often enough to convince businesses to pay royalties for unnecessary licenses.
The Open Invention Network exists to provide open source innovators with software patent defences. In this seminar, learn:
- Why software patents are a threat throughout Europe
- How joining OIN’s 600-company-strong patent non-aggression community can help
- What other defences exist against software patents for open source projects.
Becoming an OIN licensee is free of charge and you can take the next steps to join at this event.
