Comment my response to IOC (Score 1) 389

I plan on copyrighting reporting on the sun, pointing a camera at it, and then charging anyone who ventures outdoors during daylight hours for the privledge of "reporting" on the sun.

I might go so far as to claim exclusive rights on distribution of the entire visible light spectrum, just to cover all my bases.

As for the original post, I thought most countries had verbage in their copyright laws that allowed anyone to report "news", no matter where it happened to occur. Maybe I should start up a disaster relief company and claim exclusive rights to report on anyone who dies while my company is responding to the disaster?
