Can't say I'm a fan of the many patents around on things anyone would automatically think of if they came across a problem. I see it though as the nasty side of a balancing act - I'm for the basic idea if it doesn't last too long and I don't think patents do. Just thank God Disney didn't get involved and they don't last till the nth generation. The length of copyright is just far too long and wrong wrong wrong. On the other hand I would strengthen registered trade mark protection and allow it to be used for things like a character in a story so an author can write follow ups without worry about mimics even if copyright on their earliest book using the character had expired. ~~~~
