Where Do They Find These Guys?

While patent attorney Elliot Furman was interviewed about a patent filed in 1998, he uttered the following nonsense: “That is an absolutely ridiculous claim. If this patent was filed today, it would almost certainly be rejected.”  Quite true, Mr. Furman.  Incidentally, if I filed a patent on Mr. Edison’s light bulb, or the Wright Brother’s warped wings today, it too would almost certainly be rejected.
