    Having just read the patents under dispute, I find myself lowering my opinion of the US Patent system even further.

    Why? Because what is patented is, to all intents and purposes, a feedback form. As far as I can make out from the horrifically vague and flowery language used in the submissions, anyway.

    It can't be too long before someone in the US manages to patent religion then try to sue God (or at least, his various representatives on Earth....)

    I'm more worried about someone patenting a regular rhythm and sue us all for having a pulse...
