Twitter trying to stop the madness?

I liked the line from the Twitter VP Eng, "Most of us who are in this business got into it to make stuff, not to own patents or be in patent litigation."

Mind you, all this is happening while at the same time Oracle is trying to get billions of dollars out of Google.

Even if Google settles with Oracle, it will maintain the notion that it's worth it to sue.

This move represents good marketing by Twitter to portray themselves as "the good guys": http://www.businessinsider.com/everybodys-gushing-over-twitters-bogus-anti-patent-pledge-2012-4
