Elon Musk has just opened the door to every war mongering foreign government to legally steal from the US and make themselves financially superior to had working Americans.

This is a way to let the industry know that they want to play 'fair'. The industry didn't like the way they were marketing and selling their cars.

>>"Our true competition is not the small trickle of non-Tesla electric cars being produced, but rather the enormous flood of gasoline cars pouring out of the world’s factories every day," he stated.<<

Very true, but there is a good reason for that and it has nothing to do with patents.

I suppose one can do these types of things when they have billions of dollars. Elon seems to be someone who truly does want to make the world a better place and this is an example to his wanting to do so. Not sure how he really is, but this is an amazing step for someone to take with such a young company.

If you are young company like Tesla, you do not have many patents in the house. When other big corporations accuse Tesla for patent infringements, it will make Tesla look like a victim of patent bullying. Few years ago, Apple had similar strategy when adopting next gen standard for sim cards.

If Tesla is doing this, They must have a great automobile. Open Source code. First Samsung with the new OS. Now this. Time to dust off the red hat books and codes.
