OIN is an organization which helps protect the Linux ecosystem by
building a variety of defenses against patent attacks. These
defenses include both traditional mechanisms, like defensive patent
pools, and more innovative approaches, like the Linux Defenders
project, which uses a variety of methods to proactively prevent the
publication of particularly egregious patents. As a licensee, we'll
have access to OIN resources in case we're threatened by operating
entities with patents, and over time we'll likely become more
involved in providing our own ideas and resources to OIN
