OVH Ecosystem Experience : “Being part of the community: why open source is so important” (video)
It was an opportunity to discuss the strength of ecosystems in terms of securing and developing collaborations – particularly on strategic and sensitive issues such as intellectual property – but also to reflect on commonalities and virtuous systems. Finally, it was an opportunity for OVH Cloud to announce the implementation of a clarified open source strategy in terms of patents, which is reflected in three respects:
- the use of standard open source licenses (Apache or EPL) including full patent licenses for all users of OVH cloud software,
- the upcoming publication of a patent pledge (non-aggression pledge) for the benefit of open source projects,
- Membership in the Open Invention Network to help develop a defensive patent portfolio to secure Linux and its environment.
