I dont think we should support the obsolete, useless & wrong patent system by 
doing this.

Also, something must patented in which / how many of the 160 juristrictions on 
this planet (to apply for this category)? 

Is (hearsay of) a patent claim enough or does it have to be court proven?

Remeber the progress bar patent?

This is a road to nowhere.
