You don't need a patent for that. Disclosures aside for a moment,
SIR (Statutory Invention Registration) is good enough, so to say.

interesting, point 1 and 2 at that link provide something of a contridiction. How are programmers to review patent applications while not polluting themselves with the contents?. Not to mention how some of the others play against each other.

And point #4.... obvious, useful and innovative....

Define these things in terms that are provable.... one mans trash is another man treasure....... but the software industry knows this game of rethoric well (or is the software industry not the experts of abstraction fabrication and manipulation of assigned meaning ?)..... so who is it really MAKING these points useless to try and apply in a court?

its like trying to argue about god and religion with the church, who will burn you at the steak for being a witch....if you try to object using any of their inherently self supporting biased rules.

So.... its rather pointless to make use of a system that is fundamentally in error and inherently biased, to begin with (re: software patent system), wouldn't you say?

What looks like an orange, smells like an apple, but taste like something totally different..... like monkey brains.

Maybe we need to stop calling it orange juice (copyright), apple juice (patent) and start calling it what it is. Even if it means we have to first establish what it is first. And don't we have plenty examples and practices of abstraction creation (fabrication) and use (manipulation of meanings) by the software industry, to help us determine the monkey brains it is?

or is that to........... subjective, to objectively see clearly?
