Talking Point: What is the Strangest Patent, Trademark or Copyright you have heard of?

It is that time of the week again, when in to get warmed up ready for the podcast we ramble about a chosen topic. Before we got onto this weeks topic we did however have to handle the comments of the Listeners/Viewers of the previous show – What was the most impressive thing from CES 2014?

All of the comments can be found at the links below.

Seems you had a wide variation of interests, but we were surprised by the mobile activity tracking tech interest.

However for this show we want to be  bit more amused and with the stupid trademarking of the word “Candy” by we came up with the question – What is the Strangest Patent, Trademark or Copyright you have heard of?

There are some stupid and crazy things out there but whoever can let us know the most interesting will wind a random box of loot. Were not going to lie it is the stuff from random loot boxes that we do not have a use for mixed with a selection of stuff collected from various gaming conventions.

Let us know in the comments below which is your favourite and suggest a possible question for the next Talking Point, please do as I seem bad at picking them myself. Everything is fair game, from politics to movies, music to games, hell we will even discuss our favourite womble if you so wish it..

Well if the games industry can keep wheeling out that bullshit claim I think we can as well.

I mean its not as if it isn’t true either, you don’t know how the podcast was optimised and thats the point of the cloud, you don’t need to know how its done as long as it is.

No you’re more concerned with the actual output and I have to say that it was a pretty good one.

Gow got a lot more drunk than normal & Paddy was in a far more ranting mood than normal.

It was also helped by the variety of the stories this week ranging from the EA backdown on is Microsoft Ass-Licking at last week’s gamescom, Nintendo completely screwing over its hardcore fans again and the announcement of an X-com Expansion pack.

Anyway all that and much more in this episode of the Drinky Talky Thingy.
