As one of the fastest growing industries, the Linux-based free software is critical to future competitive advantage and earning profits in the global marketplace. By ensuring the openness of Linux source code, the OIN organization helps companies make significant advancements.

"3D printing and other open hardware efforts are important because they promote an open source approach as a modality for invention and yield higher levels of innovation," said Keith Bergelt, CEO of Open Invention Network. "We are pleased that Aleph Objects has joined OIN's community of licensees." About Open Invention Network Open Invention Network is a collaborative enterprise that enables innovation and an increasingly vibrant ecosystem around Linux. It does this by acquiring and licensing patents, influencing behaviors and policy and protecting the integrity of the ecosystem through strategic programs such as Linux Defenders.
