Bill Gates Grabs Patent For Distributing Art
from the non-obvious? dept
theodp writes “William H. Gates, III is the assignee of a patent issued Tuesday for a Method and system for distributing art. According to the patent, the art e-distribution system allows a user to select a space (e.g., Child2 bedroom) within a hierarchy (e.g., House -> EastWing -> Bedrooms) and then to select a playlist of art that is to be displayed at the display devices within the selected space.” Once again, you have to ask how this concept is patentable?
