Doesn't it said "allows manufacturers and mobile operators to innovate
using the platform without the requirement to contribute those
innovations back to the open-source community"? So, it also says:
"it allows manufacturers and mobile operators to innovate using the
platform contributing those innovations back to the open-source
So "brave" manufactures could develop open devices, like OpenMoko
does. Perhaps, OpenMoko could join the OHA and keep its principles, or
stay alone "compiting" against it. It's a matter of choice.
