    So according to the MPAA:

    Sharing = Theft
    Theft = Crime

    Parent teaching kids to share = Criminal

    Me = very sad person upset with criminal parents.

    Maybe I see things different. So if I back in the day designed a bi-cycle and got a patent. Can I sue someone who makes something that works similar but is of a different design (say different frame shape, maybe a shock absorber added). my understanding is that a patent is for a very specific design. So in this case it should be specific to the code (aka the design) that FlightPrep used. Therefore if I were to create a separate and unique code that requires innovation and capital investment on my part I should then have a ground for my own new unique patent. To say that once FlightPrep created their system and got a patent all others are in violation is like getting a patent for an idea. If we can patent ideas then I would like to apply for a patent for a system to store our medical records electronically so that I can sue the government as well as all the health care companies.
