Buff to patent the "sail"
I'm on to a cracker of an idea - Buff''s going to patent the "sail"!!
I know what you're thinking: your legal mind is probably going on about "prior art" or some other bit of jargon.
What you don't realise is that patent law has changed and that way of thinking is old hat. Look at Apple - they got a patent for a grid of icons despite there being examples going all the way back to Xerox Parc days. Even I remember them in Windows 3.0's program manager!
It doesn't even matter if the idea is so simple a baby could do it! What matters is writing it down on a patent application with lots of arrows pointing to numbered bits of a figure (see above).
Once awarded I'll license it to a US company and then sue a non-US organisation, preferably one based in a country once at war with America (Was it arranged that M*A*S*H be broadcast on local TV at the same time that the jurors got home? Genius if true!)
Forget putting the consumer first, IPR is what matters and Buff wants in!
This is Buff Staysail (TM) (c) (Patent pending!) over and out!
