Patent of the Day

With the passage of the Patent Reform Act, there will be lots of talk about creating jobs and so forth.  Doubtless a new patent this week, "Apparatus for facilitating the construction of a snow man/woman," U.S. Patent No. 8,011,991, will create many of those new jobs.  Update:  Techdirt likes this patent almost as much as I do.

  1. Yes, I'm not sure of the basis for recent claims by politicians that this patent reform bill will create "200,000 new jobs" ... unless those jobs are for lawyers.
