One such similar initiative by Google has been its affiliation with the Open Invention Network (OIN). "Linux now powers nearly all the world’s supercomputers, runs the International Space Station, and forms the core of Android. But as open source has proliferated, so have the threats against it, particularly using patents. That's why we're expanding our participation in Open Invention Network (OIN)" said Chris DiBona, Director of Open Source."
