Tim Worstall On Strange Patents

Lynne Kiesling

Tim Worstall has a very entertaining post on a UK patent application. For those of you who, like me, thrive on dry British wit, do make sure to click through to the .pdf of the deputy patent examiner’s response to this particular application, which appears to be a wooly attempt to claim prior art for the use of 0s and 1s in binary computing language.

Highly amusing.
