The CEO of Tesla, Elon Musk, said on Thursday that the car maker will not sue anyone who uses the patented technology from the company ‘in good faith,’ according to The Huffington Post. Musk hopes that this will help to create a larger industry for vehicles that can be recharged.

“If we clear a path to the creation of electric vehicles, but then lay intellectual property landmines behind us to inhibit others, we are acting in a manner contrary to that goal,” Musk wrote in a blog post. “Tesla will not initiate patent lawsuits against anyone who, in good faith, wants to use our technology.”

Musk originally acquired the patents in an effort to keep the secrets of Tesla quiet so the company could destroy the competition. Now, Musk says that big players in the industry do not show interest in Tesla’s work.

Musk said that he is disappointed with the lack of investing done by large car companies in electric cars. This is why Musk wants others to use the technology of Tesla to help the industry move forward.

“Our true competition is not the small trickle of non-Tesla electric cars being produced,” he wrote in the blog post, “but rather the enormous flood of gasoline cars pouring out of the world’s factories every day.”
