March 29, 2022 — OIN is the largest patent non-aggression community in history. It was formed to safeguard Open Source Software (OSS) from patent aggressors. The organization is financially backed by Google, IBM / Red Hat, NEC, Philips, Sony, SUSE and Toyota. “Fast evolving supply chain technologies – from tracking chips and sensors to blockchain platforms – continue to drive accuracy and efficiency while lowering costs for businesses and consumers. Integrated logistics companies increasingly rely on open source technologies as they modernize, integrate, and build new supply chain capabilities,” said Keith Bergelt, OIN’s CEO. As evidence of this trend, an established shipping and logistics leader like Maersk joins OIN to demonstrate its commitment to patent non-aggression in core Linux and adjacent Open Source technologies.
