But should Apple be able to purchase every blow-job patent that exists and use this portfolio to create a de-facto ******* monopoly?
Interesting idea. Do you have a link describing the ramifications of such a scenario?

P.S. I have several patents in my name ... this is a disclaimer.
P.P.S. Despite that I still suspect the world would be a better place in the absence of monopoly (involuntary) IP protection.

No. For the most part I try to generate original thoughts and ideas in the politics forum as opposed to linking to the missives of others.

I'd thought that the concept of a non-transferable title was sufficiently self explanatory that folks could imagine it for themselves.

Always been. No relevance, only a warning and an excuse to promote the movie.

Joe: I asked for a link of an article by someone that has thought through the consequences of the concept, not an explanation of the concept itself, which is simple. There is no need to get all superior.

I'm honestly not even sure how to respond, Jason.

I don't have a link to an article written by someone who has already thought out the potential consequences of such a scenario. The whole point here was that I posted an original idea with the intent of inspiring thought and discussion. Even if I knew of a third-party opinion which I could quote / link to on the topic, doing so would be contrary to my goal, as it would simply shift the focus of the thread towards argument and criticism of the merits of that specific interpretation, rather than generating new debate and interpretation.

Is it too much to ask that people actually contemplate a topic and postulate independant hypothesis about it, rather than just heading straight to Google to try and track down an opinion which has already been written?

I think I just rendered Jason speechless in a political argument.


I fear that the sixth seal may have just been broken, and that the apocalypse is nigh.

The only apocalypse that may be nigh is in my bank account, due to the fixer upper house I bought which needs foundation/drainage/termite/kitchen/bathroom/floors/paint/landscaping/lights/window/AC/whole house fan. And the time it eats explains my speechlessness.

cliffs, still an idiot:

Quote:
In an address to the United Nations General Assembly today, President Barack Obama dedicated several long passages to discussing and condemning what the New York Times has described as a 14-minute "amateurish video" that a 55-year-old Southern California man posted on YouTube in June.

And that is why you should read the original text, rather than some idiots spin of it:

I heard/read the speech.


the mere fact that he even said, "as a crude and disgusting video sparked outrage throughout the Muslim world"

is insulting to al Qaeda and Americans alike.


the entire speech he's suggesting it was the video that envoked pre-planned terorrist attackes over and over, we all know that's not the case. that is why he's an idiot and an insult the the 7 red stripes, 6 white stripes and 50 stars.


he still believes we can end the violence by radical islam through understanding. and the WE need to have more faith in THEM the problem is not them, the problem is that we don't respect islam.

"I’ve got to give a special shout-out to my pastor. The guy who puts up with me. Counsels me. Listens to my wife complain about me. He’s a friend. And a great leader"

-Obama, 2007

"Racism is how this country was founded and how this country is still run!…We [in the U.S.] believe in white supremacy and black inferiority and believe it more than we believe in God."

- Pastor

Biden just admitted two truths:

1. The middle class have been buried for the last four years.

2. And Romney's tax plan are "tax cuts" to the middle class.

Romney thinks the windows on airliners should open.







That's all.
