Keynote: Microsoft Participation and the Further Reduction of Patent Risk in the Core of Linux/OSS - Keith Bergelt, Chief Executive Officer, Open Invention Network (OIN) [Open Source Summit EU 2018]

OIN (Open Innovation Network) was created to protect the industry moving into an open source environment with a lot of licenses that offer little patent protection (only Apache-2.0 and xGPL-3.0 really do).

No company has come further in moving from being a proprietary software oriented company to one that embraces open source to the fullest than Microsoft. Joining the OIN is yet another manifestation of that.
