By their retarded logic (i.e. Windows, apart from material objects on

Welcome to the enlightened world of U.S. intellectual property law where
our elected representatives sit on their asses and do little but plan
for re-election or should that fail, a lucrative job as a lobbyist after
they leave office.

Meanwhile, software developers can cleanly revolve their
copyright-patent legal disputes by assuming that the object of their
inquiry is either a fucking bird, a plane, Superman or a "software
patent" -- maybe, sorta', kinda' -- depending upon which court you ask.
