Revision as of 08:59, 9 December 2009

Stories, storylines, and literatture are examples of fields where ideas cannot be patented.

(to check: See Ben D. Manevitz "What's the Story with Storyline Patents - An Argument Against the Allowance of Proposed Storyline Patents and for the Rejection of Currently Pending Storyline Patent Applications" (2006) 24 Cardozo Arts & Entertainment Law Journal 717.)
