Friday Patent Class

Here's today's lesson:

Geschmacksmuster: Like a U.S. design patent, but in Germany. Not to be confused with Gebrauchsmuster (Utility Model Patent), or Debauchmonster (what you see when PIMP is at Soundgarden).

Good news for aspiring inventors: the USPTO will give you a patent for just about any damn thing these days.

This bill: H.R.2791 will not pass. Which is too bad for my company. And also for all you 'inflationary vacuum state' propulsion types.


A & A at my place tomorrow at 2:00PM. You know who you are.

I don't know. I am not playing poker again until January.
