Google Patent Programs

Google promotes innovation both within our company and throughout the technology ecosystem. In the spirit of fostering such innovation, we continually strive to embrace new models for using and sharing intellectual property across a variety of technology areas. Beyond acquiring, divesting, and licensing patents, our programs include our release of open source software (like Android and TensorFlow), our participation in community licenses (including Open Invention Network’s and LOT Network’s), and other initiatives like the Open Patent Non-Assert Pledge and the VP8 License.
