Uber joins the Open COVID Pledge

We’re happy to announce that Uber has joined the Open COVID Pledge and is making all of its patents available to the public, free of charge, for use in ending the COVID-19 pandemic. The company has chosen to use our OCL-P(Open COVID License – Patent 1.1) license to grant permission to use its IP.

Tony West, Uber’s Chief Legal Officer, said in a statement: “The Open COVID Pledge allows us to empower innovators and scientists and to help them create solutions that might put an end to this global crisis.”

We encourage other companies with intellectual property that might be used or built upon in the fight against COVID-19 to also make the pledge. For more information about how to join our effort, read our page about Making and Implementing the Open COVID Pledge or email us at opencovidpledge@gmail.org.
