Indian IT major has joined Open Invention Network (OIN), a patent non-aggression community with over 2000 members. Infosys says that it has joined OIN because it believes that open source software (OSS) is a necessary enabler as enterprises worldwide use the Internet to build new consumer-centric and connected applications.

OIN's community practices patent non-aggression in core and adjacent open source technologies by cross-licensing Linux System patents to one another on a royalty-free basis. Patents owned by Open Invention Network (OIN) are similarly licensed royalty-free to any organisation that agrees not to assert its patents against the Linux System.

“We appreciate Infosys's leadership in joining OIN, and believe that those that look to the company for inspiration, both in and outside of India, will see the wisdom it has demonstrated by supporting patent non-aggression in Linux and adjacent open source technologies, said , CEO of Open Invention Network.

“Open source software has become the primary engine of innovation, and should now be viewed as the key building block of all modern enterprise architectures. Innovation in areas like cloud computing, big data, , DevOps and modern web frameworks are all happening in the open source ecosystem, and the adoption of these technologies in enterprises is benefiting from the foundation of Linux that enterprise IT departments have already invested in,” said Navin Budhiraja, SVP – head – architecture & technology, Infosys.

“Infosys is actively taking open source, and open source based products, to all our enterprise customers, and so we are extremely excited to become part of OIN, and we encourage others to join OIN as well to support this very important initiative,” he added.

Political party manifestos neglect migrant worker policies despite their crucial role during COVID-19. Migrant workers, being unorganised and lacking a forum, remain unheard. Nonetheless, the state must create effective policies to address their concerns and establish an institutional framework for comprehensive support.
