‘All Our Patent Are Belong To You.’

‘All Our Patent Are Belong To You.’

Posted Sunday, 15 June 2014

Strange syntax and giving away patent rights highlights radical move by American electric vehicle company.

As stories go, this may be the story of the year.

When was the last time you heard of a business entrepreneur giving away the patent rights to the technology that he’s painstakingly developed and invested many millions of dollars in?

Elon Musk is a strange name, and the electric cars that he makes have got a strange name too (Tesla), so when he announced a radical new move to make available his many patents for free to his potential competitors, perhaps it’s not surprising that he is also canny enough to work out a cut through media technique by messing with the syntax of the headline in his press release.

‘As a Textile Designer, I think it's important to be involved with an association that supports our industry.’

‘I have been a member since the Australian Textile Design Association merged with the DIA.’

‘As well as the many professional benefits available to all DIA members, my membership of the Textile Practice Group also provides a forum to network and discuss issues specific to textile designers.’

My family; English rock music; Guy Ritchie movies.

Best design I've seen lately:
The mini (the car rather than the skirt – but then again)... or perhaps my iPhone.
