Msol: The weird bluescreen behind Drew was strange, I was actually surprised there was an audience. The whole thing looked a little fake.
towatchoverme: I just patented fingers.No more posts in this thread.
Yuri Futanari: i type wwith m,y p[eenis
Mirrorz: I just patented the act of listening. All you motherf*ckers better settle.
DrBenway: Patent troll is not amused:Mouhamad A. NaboulsiLess than 5 minutes ago: It is very apparent that the speaker lives in the present and has no vision. Yes, sending news via e-mail is trivial "TODAY", but it was not when the patent was filed or issued.
gingerjet: Has anyone done the joke about patenting something obvious and getting everyone to pay up yet?

Tziva: Drubell: Drew, since you're here, can I have a free month of TF?Wow, does that work?Drew, can I have a giant bronze statue of myself riding a tyrannosaurus? Hook me up, dude.
Drubell: Drew, since you're here, can I have a free month of TF?
Flab: Too short.
Drew: I respectfully disagree...
Drew: Galloping Galoshes: However Drew beat a patent troll, he didn't do it long enough, hard enough, or with a big enough stick.No stick is large enoughHowever if by some miracle I actually get that patent, I'm going nuclear on them
Mouhamad A. NaboulsiLess than 5 minutes ago: It is very apparent that the speaker lives in the present and has no vision. Yes, sending news via e-mail is trivial "TODAY", but it was not when the patent was filed or issued.The speaker is old enough to remember the stacks of paper that we had to lug around as late as the turn of the century, so he is being disingenuous by trivializing the vision of the inventors and the value of patent.I can say with great certainty that he and all those who infringed on the patent, either knew directly of its existence or chose to neglect looking for it, and properly licensing it from the inventor. I can say with great certainty that the inventor must have approached these companies, at one time or another, to license the patent, but with their usual "smug", "dishonest", "bullying" attitude demonstrated here, they may have laughed the guy out the door, if he ever got close to the door in the first place.Trolls (as this guy calls them) are the great equalizers. If he and others like him where to respect rights of fellow citizens as enshrined by the constitutional mandate, we would not be in the need for trolls.All in all, the piece is an attack on creative and visionaries who spend blood, sweat, sleepless nights and money to get something out to humanity, while a joker like this guy, think he is smart enough to use these Intellectual Properties, so he is not obligated to pay for it.I would like to see him treating a song from iTunes or a video copy of a film the same way so he want us to treat patents. He won't, because he will pays $240K per copy and spend sometime in jail.When my patents are issued, there will not be any settlements. Infringes will pay per copy. Laugh at that F,G,T,N,M,B,M,V,A,C,Z,A. See you guys in courts in Detroit.
PYROY: For some reason, I always expected Drew to have a lisp and a neck scratching habit.
Galloping Galoshes: However Drew beat a patent troll, he didn't do it long enough, hard enough, or with a big enough stick.
FTGodWin: It's s TED talk. You can say anything you want at those and everyone believes it.
DrZiffle: Glad you could sober up long enough to do this.*runs*
bdub77: I was disappointed with the lack of pics of what trolls look like.
Theaetetus: Respectfully, Drew, you've got a lot of inaccuracies in that talk.
