If you've got twitter as part of your name, and under these rulings, surely, the company would have to change its name, too.
|The microblogging service settled a lawsuit on Tuesday with marketing software company TweetAdder, in which the agreement was clearly in favor of Twitter. The terms of the settlement were filed in U.S. District Court in San Francisco. |
Under the terms of the settlement, the owners and employees of TweetAdder agree not to take part in "creating, developing, manufacturing, adapting, modifying, making available, trafficking in, using, disclosing, selling, licensing, distributing (with or without monetary charge), updating, providing costumer support for, or offering for use, sale, license, or distribution (with or without monetary charge), any software or technology designed for use in connection with Twitter's service."
Basically, TweetAdder can no longer come near Twitter. And, if it does, it faces steep fines.Twitter Wins Lawsuit Stopping Software Firm From Using Twitter Service In Any Way [news.cnet.com]
