Legal Say what you want about Twitter - pointless, annoying, noise, useless - at least the company has its heart in the right place. Twitter just announced the Innovator's Patent Agreement, a promise not use their or their employees' patents offensively. In a world where yesterday's innovators are today's patent trolls - Apple, Microsoft, Oracle - this is a big deal.

" In a world where yesterday's innovators are today's patent trolls - Apple, Microsoft, Oracle -"

I would be interested to know what definition of "patent troll" you use to consider any of these companies as one of them.
