FRIDAY FUN

Creativity abounds at our office, and especially when we spend a weekend together at the Oklahoma Bar Association’s Intellectual Property Law Section yearly meeting in Dallas.  After telling a few (very funny) patent jokes, I challenged a few people to come up with limericks related to patent law.  We had great ones, and some that will never see eyes of the blogosphere.  Our rockstar, however, is Barb Yuill (pictured above), who I have now named the Patent Limerick Queen.  For your Friday enjoyment, here are a few patent limericks from her (and one from me, because I couldn’t resist).

There once was a case named Alice,

To many the holding seems callous,

Now all claims are abstract,

- 101 Patent Act-

Surely the court meant no malice.

                                                                                                                    Barb Yuill

 

Ed had an invention for braking,

And a patent for methods of making,

Jane did Step B while

John did C thru E,

And Ed’s patent was not worth the taking.

                                                                                                                    Barb Yuill

 

There once was a system comprising,

Elements, ideas, and advising;

Under Section 101,

The claims came undone,

Oh Alice...another chastising?
