Matthew Rimmer will be speaking on "Tesla Motors: intellectual property, 
open innovation and climate change" at the ANU in Canberra, 1pm Friday, 
24 April 2015: 

Matthew has provided a written text (with some linked videos), for those 
who can't get along: 

"On the 12th June 2014, Elon Musk, the chief executive officer of the 
electric car manufacturer, Tesla Motors, announced in a blog that ‘all 
our patents belong to you.’ He explained that the company would adopt an 
open source philosophy in respect of its intellectual property in order 
to encourage the development of the industry of electric cars, and 
address the carbon crisis."

ps: I will be speaking on "Innovations in Teaching Innovation" at ANU
