In panels one, four, and five, the patent clerk's shirt is red.
In panel three, it is blue. :[]

The patent clerk should patent his color-changing shirt.

It's been a few months since a webcomic author has grossly misunderstood patent law, so we were overdue.

Then again, Zach continues to insist that the name "Choose Your Own Adventure" is copyrighted, so we're not talking about an IP expert here.

Newton can't patent calculus. I invented it first!

From what little I know about patent law, this comic almost is not hyperbole. One guy has patented all fractal antennas, for instance; of course, there are infinitely many fractals and so infinitely many fractal antennas, including some which were manufactured prior to the patent applications! So in summary, as I understand it, some jackass gets to patent an infinite number of possible designs because those designs can be described in with similar math. Anyway, I'll stop ranting.

Patent law wouldn't be in existence till 1875 anyway.
Imitations of Bass Pale Ale led to the introduction of the copyright symbol with the Red Triangle logo for Bass being the first registered trademark.
