It’s late, i’m ‘tired’ and now we are really screwed. Copyright and Patents are converging. Part 0.1

Right(s) Based on an execution of an idea.

Patents: Based on a description of an idea.

One is music, art and film etc The other pharmaceuticals, tech, software etc

Given the confusing international legislation going on you might as well admit that one equals the other equals a law suit.

So could Kraftwerk ‘patent’ the inspiration they gave or owe JG Ballard coin?

Could band x argue that even though Band Y sound nothing like each other that the other was inspired by the idea of having, well, a band.

Somebody invented Ketchup. Now any tomato based condiment is fucked,

The world of copyright monopoly and patent monopoly are converging – rapidly.
