Probably one of those many American patents that the
rest of the world laughs at. Rushing down to the
patent office and patenting something first doesn't
give ANY rights where moral issues say otherwise.

It's as distasteful as that whole ambulance chaser/
Ally Mcbeal US lawyer crud that seems to be taking
over modern life. Just because you CAN get away with
something on paper and later profit in the courts
DOES NOT mean that you should.

And I won't even start on American patents of things
that have been common for years in many other
countries, but didn't have a US PATENT yet...

By the same fact that rushing to the office to register your newborn child,
it doesn't mean it is your son, of course, until different proven, the kid
IS legally your son and will call you "daddy".

Nice that you agree, but sad when a person in
the next country finds out that you haven't
registered your child in THEIR country yet and
does so before you, and then takes ownership from
you along with many $$$ in damages for having
used their LEGALLY OWNED child. ;o)

These days "legally owned" is becoming something
of an oxymoron...

As far as I remember and was said, patents of all countries are now
international, you don't need to register internationally.  Obviously it
was turning ridiculous with all the globalization.

We have some patents and wanted to register in some other countries, the
lawyer said it is not required anymore. Ownership should be valid here or
in Mars.

AFAIK IF you can prove prior art even a US parent is  demonstrated to be
void. In the case in question prior art is as close as various application
notes or a 7+ year old circuit that clients of friends of mine are using. (I
guess the parental equivalent in this case is a failed DNA test :-)).

I don't think I've EVER called my mother "daddy". Plenty of other
things from time to time though
