Google Patent Programs

Google promotes innovation both within our company and throughout the technology ecosystem. In the spirit of fostering such innovation, we have embraced new models for sharing intellectual property across a variety of technology areas. Our programs include our release of open source software (like Android and VP8), our participation in community licenses (including the Open Invention Network License), and some newer initiatives like the Open Patent Pledge, the VP8 License and License on Transfer.
