  • There has to be a breaking point in relation to what is patent-able and what is not. Without laying down clear lines or perhaps just overhauling the nature of IP/Patent all together, I don't believe we'll be able to innovate our way out of messes like the environmental crisis. Apple got away with a patent on the SHAPE of their phone, Monsanto on biological life, and now the color yellow for DMMs. Thanks for this article SparkFun, this is a great exposure regarding this problem. We must find points of leverage to turn the institution over, or at least start budging it in the right direction.

No public wish lists :(
