How New Default Consensus Realities Instantiate

Hot New Patent Practice - Marketing Strategies

So, apparently marketing and advertising strategies are now patentable inventions. It is flat embarrassing that USPTO would engage in such chintzy chicanery. Opera has been resizing browser displays based on the devices used for YEARS; but toss in some ads and it’s a whole new invention? I don’t think so. USPTO and GOOG hooking up is like a Bill Clinton and Britney Spears affair; the crusty old beauracrat and debutante turned cow-queen. He gets to pretend he’s young, she gets to pretend she’s important. Brilliant.
