It’s not that we need reminders of how stupid people can be, but when those entrusted with legal authority act with astonishing anti-intelligence (which I will now trademark) it means that well known keystrokes in the public domain can apparently be claimed (http://www.smh.com.au/news/technology/web/winking-emoticon-trademarked/2008/12/12/1228585088693.html). Personally, I give these opportunistic desperados no credence whatsoever ;)
