An unusual step by the US car manufacturer Tesla: The company has handed over all its patents to the public. The reason? The company wants to facilitate the spread of electric car technology. The matter is not that simple.
In an unusual step, the US electric car manufacturer Tesla has handed over all public patents to promote the spread of its technology. "All of our patents belong to you", the Tesla boss Elon Musk wrote in a blog entry on Thursday. The company has "In the spirit of the open source movement" the rights to their patents to facilitate the spread of electrical auto technology. Tesla would not submit any patent law lawsuits if other companies used the technology developed by the company, Musk promised.But that only applies if this is too "good intentions" – This leaves room for interpretation. Armaments companies should not be meant by this, of course producers of electric cars. Tesla has not only developed electric cars, but also the appropriate quick charging stations (superchargers), where Tesla drivers can also recharge their batteries in Germany free of charge in Germany.

Nobody wants to develop electric cars
The Tesla boss continued that at the time the company was founded, they believed that they had to protect their technology from patents from the fact that the large car companies copied them and then used their market power to use Tesla. But the opposite was the case. "We couldn’t have been wrong anymore", wrote Musk. the "unhappy reality" be that the large car companies practically did not develop their own electric cars. The proportion of electric cars is still with "far less than one percent of the total sold vehicles".

The legal professor Brian Love told the AFP news agency that he had one "very positive reaction" seen on Tesla’s announcement. For a long time there has been a debate for the advantages of patents of smaller companies. However, Love said it was unclear whether Tesla actually gave up his patents or whether the company only promises not to legally pursue users. The California manufacturer is very successful with its electric cars. With the construction of a large battery factory, the company wants to further reduce the production costs and has set itself the goal, in the medium term 500.To produce 000 cars a year.
On the Tesla website, Musk’s blog entry has already been commented on by hundreds of users. Almost all of them congratulate the Tesla boss and express his respect for him. Some also make a comparison to Apple: "This contradicts the offensive patent strategy that other corporations such as Apple use. I would say that Tesla has a much more useful technology that can change the world", So the comment of a user.
