MuyComputer our colleagues say, Twitter, the popular microblogging service has become one of the most effective media worldwide and in all settings, has launched a interesting initiative.
In the avalanche of patent lawsuits that are performed in the United States, where patent seems a national sport, Twitter has made a decision: the publication of the Innovator’s Patent Agreement.
While many companies base much of their business to patent concepts, products or ideas and then attack other companies that are theoretically not allowed to use-or rather, not paid-in these patents, Twitter wants make it clear that patents are only recorded for defense .
patent war has caused many analysts to prevent innovation : companies are afraid to innovate because other companies can claim such misuse of its patents, but before that behavior “to the offensive “to most companies (SCO was a clear example of this option) Twitter has published a kind of contract between the company and its employees in claiming that any patents relating to the business will only be used defensive purposes .
can find more information on these terms in GitHub, where they have published the contract this unique initiative that we expect many companies to adopt .
