That translates to: "You have Klingons around Uranus".
Summary judgement against the nerds.

This is clever, but not necessarily effective. A judge is generally under no obligation to consider the arguments in an amicus brief in the first place. Most judges will, in the interests of getting the right answer. But amicusbriefs -- at least ones that are intended to be effective, not ones that are intended as posturing or publicity -- tend to try to be as clear and concise as possible. An amicusbrief that goes out of its way to be difficult to read is going to wear a judge's patience thin very quickly.

Lute gharghmey is commonly mistaken by the uninitiated as some sort of majestic Klingon feasting hall wall-art. It's dried puke.

An interesting question.
I guess I don't see why it can't be, but I also don't see why it should be.
And even if it is, it wouldn't be Paramount that owns it.

"even the Pakleds would know that nobody can "own" a language"

Yep, that's the weirdest and nerdiest brief I've ever read.
That's a pretty deep reference.

Yeah, I always refer to Pakleds in my technical presentations as a stand-in for management.

These are the magic words Tingle created himself. Don't steal them!

Oops, I should have posted that in the Space Raptor Butt Invasion thread.
No, wait, switch Tingle with Paramount and it fits.

I love linguistics and I've studied several languages.  I understand the appeal of learning another language or even making up your own language, but I don't understand why people devote so much time to learning a language that no other human naturally uses (or has used at some point in human history).  I studied Latin, a 'dead' language (very few people speak it as a first language), but it helped me in learning other romance languages and understanding English better.  Learning Klingon does no such thing.  The most I could do is talk with other Klingon obsessives and maybe understand an actor's garbled attempt at speaking the pretend language in a Star Trek series, but that's just about it.

I mean, obviously this lawsuit is about money, I'm not blind to that.  But it's the fans that confuse me.

I wish I hadn't wasted so much time learning Japanese.. Klingon would have been a better choice. I'd have more chances to use it. That's what I get for living in the suburbs.
