Dilbert Takes On Overbearing Patents

from the but-confuses-trademark-law dept

It didn’t take very long for a whole bunch of you to submit today’s Dilbert, where Scott Adams (finally) goes after overly broad patents, with Dilbert announcing that it makes no sense to build things any more, since “all future ideas are already covered by over-general patents”:

Though, to be fair, Adams seems to confuse patents and trademarks in the second panel (editors?). Still, nice to see Dilbert taking on such an issue.

Re: Re: Re: No Taco for you

Hang on, people who are accusing Glenn Beck of raping a young black girl in 1990 are now suddenly contracting swine flu?

Are there any lengths he won’t go to in order to cover up the fact that he still won’t deny not having raped a woman?

Sick bastard (not you, Glenn). I mean that Glenn is sick obviously for not denying that he is giving out swine flu to people exposing his covering up his not denying raping a girl not you for having it, although you obviously are or were sick, but in a different way, unless Glenn also has swine flu after exposing himself in which case you’re both sick in the same way…partially

Some people say that Glenn is not doing enough to protect the children, and now I understand why. It must be because he’s too busy raping them or infecting those kids who spot that he hasn’t said that he isn’t in fact Glenn Beck an alleged child rapist but someone else instead

I can’t believe this is allowed to go on – I’m shocked, this is too much…[sobs]…won’t somebody think of the anchors? No? [blows nose]…this isn’t the America I love…Oh yeah I’m English, anyway…[cries]…devastated
