Copenhagen, Denmark – Muellners Foundation, a not-for-profit humanitarian organisation that advocates for financial inclusion, social inclusion, and biodiversity, announced today that it has joined the Open Invention Network (OIN), the largest patent non-aggression community in history.
Muellners Foundation hosts a global open source community and supports best practices and industry standards in the financial services sector. Foundation also suggests regulatory reforms to financial supervisory and regulatory agencies, inter-governmental agencies, social and development organisations and financial crimes agencies, among others, through its open research.
As an industry association, Foundation independently observes, investigates and peer reviews research, and creates studies on open source documentation and practices regarding different financial services and technologies.
“We are excited to be part of the larger OIN community and contribute towards freedom of the collective and a patent “no fly” zone alongside strong non-aggression IP policies” said Ankit Muellner, Foundation’s Independent Board member.
“We are pleased that an organization that supports open collaboration and diversity globally has joined OIN. The financial services and fin-tech industry will continue to improve based on innovations that spring from open source software’s collaborative innovation model,” said Keith Bergelt, CEO of Open Invention Network.
Keith further added that “Given its focus on best practices in the financial services sector, it is notable that the Muellners Foundation has joined our community and is publicly supporting patent non-aggression in open source.”
OIN’s community practices patent non-aggression in core Linux 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 are similarly licensed royalty-free to any organization that agrees not to assert its patents against the Linux System.
