Tesla opens all their patents to open source

It's a stunning move. A corporation moving away from the hoarding of patents, and instead, opening them up for all. A corporation rather than stifling innovation, working hard to move it forward in their industry. THat's what Tesla continues to do--move the electric car market forward. There is pushback from nearly every possible walk of life in their industry. Car manufacturers dont want them to succeed, car dealers don't want to sell their cars. The industry itself is set to reinvent itself, and this move will spur that along. Of course, there are ulterior motives. If companies us their patents Tesla essentially controls the entire electric market because everyone will use their stuff, like their batteries..... It's a risk and the only payoff is in the long long run. We'll see if Tesla survives until then.
