+ - Fight frivolous patents with Bleeding Obvious

Submitted by
AndyArmstrong
AndyArmstrong writes "Bleeding Obvious is a wiki where you can record all those ideas that seem too obvious to patent — but which you know someone might try to patent — like, you know, having purchases confirmed with a single click. Unlike other prior art repositories it's designed to be a lightweight notepad where you can jot down an idea without having to pay or master an arcane user interface. So next time you think 'hey that's a cute idea — I wonder how long it will take someone to patent it' go and create a page at Bleeding Obvious to establish prior art."

The tao that can be tar(1)ed is not the entire Tao. The path that can be specified is not the Full Path.
