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.

Besides, if Microsoft doesn't make those companies license their patents or sue they risk invalidating their patents.


This only applies to trademarks, not patents or copyright.
