Open Invention Network (OIN) has announced that Xiaomi Corporation has become a licensee and community member of OIN. Xiaomi is reinforcing its commitment to open source software (OSS) as an enabler of advanced smartphones, smart devices and advanced IoT platforms.

Keith Bergelt, CEO of Open Invention Network added, “Smartphones, intelligent devices, and IoT technology are driving unprecedented capabilities to improve personal relationships, expand entertainment options, make homes smarter and drive business efficiency. Thanks to its rich technical research and development capabilities, Xiaomi has created a significant array of products and services, as well as a sophisticated intellectual property portfolio. We appreciate Xiaomi joining OIN and demonstrating its commitment to collaborative innovation and patent non-aggression in open source.”

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. Patents owned by Open Invention Network are similarly licensed royalty-free to any organization that agrees not to assert its patents against the Linux System.

Cui, Xiaomi Group Vice President said, “Xiaomi is dedicated to bringing transparent and trustworthy products to users, so that quality technology is accessible to everyone. Linux and open source technology are a core part of Xiaomi products. We will continue to develop and integrate OSS into our products. By joining OIN, we are demonstrating our unceasing commitment to creativity and open source. We proudly support Linux and the development of other open source projects in a manner that is free from patent concerns.”
