Submission + - Patenting the Photoshop Process (photographybay.com)

hawridger writes: Scott Kelby's 7 Point System for Adobe Photoshop CS3 is due to release on October 19th and sounds really promising. So promising, in fact, that he's applied for a patent on this "7 Point System." If a patent issues, will readers be forbidden from discussing the techniques on forums, blogging about it, posting youtube videos of the "system" in action? Is there a license to "use" the patent included with the purchase of the book? This seems like a big dang deal for photographers and anyone else that uses Photoshop (or any other image-editing software for that matter). This could open a huge can of worms in the photography/digital illustration industry.
