Timothy Noah writes in the (awfully redesigned) Slate:

Looking back from the 22nd century, future historians will marvel at the current era’s obsession with extending intellectual property rights well past any reasonable limit.

Well, not if they read this blog! The piece is about a patent granted to a five-year old child for the “business process” of swinging. Swinging. On a swing. In a playground.

I guess it’s all about the altitude — or the attitude.
