This is a potentially world changing move.

 

http://www.usatoday....-drop/10374433/

 

 

Tesla Motors CEO Elon Musk said Thursday that it won't penalize any other company that wants to make products based on its patented technology for long-range electric cars.

Musk said in a blog post that he is taking the action to encourage the auto industry to make more electric cars like Tesla's Model S.

"Tesla will not initiate patent lawsuits against anyone who, in good faith, wants to use our technology," he wrote.

He says that technology leadership has been shown historically not to be driven by patents.

"Technology leadership is not defined by patents, which history has repeatedly shown to be small protection indeed against a determined competitor, but rather by the ability of a company to attract and motivate the world's most talented engineers," he wrote. "We believe that applying the open source philosophy to our patents will strengthen, rather than diminish, Tesla's position in this regard."

He says he is taking the action because major automakers are failing to develop long-range electric cars like Tesla's Model S, which has a maximum EPA-range of 265 miles. Instead, those who have made electric cars have generally limited their range per charge to about 100 miles, which hasn't made them popular with consumers.

He says Tesla had once feared that major automakers could copy its technology and use it to clobber the electric-car start-up with their powerful marketing budgets. But it never happened. Instead, he says the electric car industry needs to be fostered, introducing consumers to more sustainable cars in the face of the world environmental threat.

Shame we don't have more men like Musk in this world, it'd certainly make it a more pleasant place to live in.

Actually this may prompt a future of open source inventions.

Watch the big car companies make a similar copy of the model-s within the next few years.

From his point of view its better to open up the electric market rather than let Hydrogen get a foothold.

This one of the benefits of being a private vs a publicly listed company in the latter the share holders would never let this happen. Elon Musk is really such a cool guy you can't help but root for him but i feel this could be slightly naive.


"The future will be better tomorrow.  If we do not succeed, then we run the risk of failure.   For NASA, space is still a high priority. The Holocaust was an obscene period in our nation's history. No, not our nation's, but in World War II. I mean, we all lived in this century. I didn't live in this century, but in this century's history. Republicans understand the importance of bondage between a mother and child. We're going to have the best-educated American people in the world."  Dan Quayle

I think this has a lot of truth to it.

Elon Musk is already the most definite "Man of the Future" ;).

I reckon this decade will be the most exciting for technology breakthroughs since I was born 26 years ago :D and I am so happy to be experiencing and seeing how it could change the world we live in. Tesla pushes forward electric car technology, Fusion jumps closer to reality, solar roadways are making headway, solar power in general is growing fast, computing is getting faster than the predictions estimate. So exciting!


“If the genius of invention were to reveal to-morrow the secret of immortality, of eternal beauty and youth, for which all humanity is aching, the same inexorable agents which prevent a mass from changing suddenly its velocity would likewise resist the force of the new knowledge until time gradually modifies human thought.”
