We are pleased to announce that effective November 15, 2013 Google Inc., a Delaware corporation, became a Member of the Open Invention Network (“OIN”).
Additionally, we are pleased to announce that effective on March 7, 2014, OIN will update the definition of the Linux System set forth on our website, http://www.openinventionnetwork.com/pat_linuxdef.php, which modifies the rights under OIN’s license agreements by adding a new Table 6 that includes adding the following packages to the definition of Linux System:
This change will apply to all members of OIN, associate members, and licensees (collectively, the “OIN Licensee Community”) other than as limited by the existing carve-outs, thereby broadening the scope of the license and release that you receive from OIN and the OIN Licensee Community as well as the scope of the license and release you grant back to OIN and the OIN Licensee Community.
This letter serves as notice pursuant to Section 2.1 of the License Agreement between you and OIN. All changes to your license agreement and the Linux System Definition are available for review on the OIN website at http://www.openinventionnetwork.com/.
