Forgive me Pioneer but why should $%^#ing data deletion at the end of an objective be patentable?

This is why the patent system should be thrown out on its a**. So many things that are patented are simply processes of doing things which they themselves depend on other tangibles.

My god, someone wake up and fix this crap!
I want to patent the "standing pee" stance. Whoever pees standing will have to pay me a license fee.
Mappers wanted. Read this to get started. Payment = Recognition = Priceless.

Same hoo-ha years ago when InTel and AMD has a fight over patenting their processor chips number 286, 386, 486 etc .... Court fight went on for a decade with conclusion, Judge threw it our of court ... you cannot patent numbers .. thus nowadays, processors take fancy names ... :ko:

You can patent, you can sue. But it means nothings!

So, why is patent invented? Why there is no protections for patent owners?

Patents are as good as the claims that are written in the filed documents. A good patent Lawyer will know the finer points of expressing its functions and uses. Patents are useful to protect the inventor but there are too many loop holes within the Law to negotiate around it... If you can negotiate a deal do it... sue only when all options failed.

Please patent the 'Standing Pee' stance and I'll file for 'Pee falling to the ground using Gravity'... :lol: :lol: :lol: ...

Merry Christmas!
