Patents

+ - Fight frivolous patents with Bleeding Obvious

Submitted by

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."

Competence, like truth, beauty, and contact lenses, is in the eye of the beholder. -- Dr. Laurence J. Peter
