Seems to be a minor discussion of elfin IP over at Volokh Conspiracy (look in the comments).

I’m curious — even if the elves own the process of forging magic rings, wouldn’t their failure to take action when Sauron crafted the Seven and the Nine contribute to some sort of [waiver] defense? Patents aren’t my strong suit, I’m afraid …

I have no idea what he’s talking about. But my sad guess is many of you do. And this is all about you. (It’s my other blog that’s all about me. Except for the parts Pennywit writes!)

One thought on “Little IP”
  1. I don’t see why selling weapons to a foreign government would act as a waiver of patent rights, even considering the use to which they were later put. To my knowledge, there was no embargo against selling magic technology to Mordor at any time during the deal.
