[ NNSquad ] Twitter introduces the "Innovator's Patent Agreement"

Introducing the Innovator's Patent Agreement

http://j.mp/I3Ea5X  (Twitter Engineering)

   "The IPA is a new way to do patent assignment that keeps control in the
    hands of engineers and designers. It is a commitment from Twitter to
    our employees that patents can only be used for defensive purposes. We
    will not use the patents from employees' inventions in offensive
    litigation without their permission. What's more, this control flows
    with the patents, so if we sold them to others, they could only use
    them as the inventor intended."
