Humouse Patent Saga

from the foot-in-mouse-puns-begone dept

We’ve talked about how troubled the patent system is, so here’s an article on the debate over whether a part-human/part-mouse (a humouse) can be patented. So far the application has been rejected, and no one seems to want to sort it all out. I’m not sure if the humouse patent should be granted, but there are already plenty of bad patents to warrant a bad patent website.
