  • Link is demonstrating its commitment to adopting OSS as a foundation for its networking solutions and protecting open source innovations from patent risks
  • OIN’s community practices patent non-aggression in core Linux and adjacent open source technologies by cross-licensing Linux System patents to one another on a royalty-free basis

D-Link Corporation has become a licensee and community member of Open Invention Network (OIN), the largest patent non-aggression community. By participating in the OIN community, D-Link is demonstrating its commitment to adopting OSS as a foundation for its networking solutions and protecting open source innovations from patent risks, it said.

Mark Chen, President of D-Link said, “More than 70 per cent of D-Link’s networking and communication solutions have implemented open source software since the beginning phase of research and development. We have and will continue to advocate for OSS and patent non-aggression, and we look forward to making our contributions to the OIN community to encourage innovation.”

Keith Bergelt, CEO of Open Invention Network said, “We are pleased D-Link is employing open source code in its products and welcome its commitment to patent non-aggression in core Linux and adjacent open source technologies required under the OIN license. The diffusion of a common set of values in terms of patent risk mitigation coupled with more broad-based adoption of rigorous compliance management processes creates a context for IP Governance that OIN encourages among all its community members. “
