15 June 2015: Patents: Has Tesla Motors changed down a gear? - Reddie & Grose LLP

Reddie & Grose LLP, patent attorneys (not, whatever they say on their website, "attorneys"), more specifically Ben Palmer of that firm, asks Has Tesla Motors changed down a gear? The article provides interesting background information against which Tesla's dedication of its patent portfolio to the public domain can be assessed. The company's patent filings have tailed off significantly in the recent past, suggesting that perhaps they aren't being as generous as might at first seem to be the case - and of course there is always the suspicion that the rider, to the effect that others are free to use the patented technology in good faith - provides an escape route should the company wish to change its policy.
