Interesting article in L.A. Times about a scientist, Stuart Newman, and his friend Jeremy Rifkin, who are challenging the patent system. They're trying to get a patent on a deliberately outrageous construction, a "humouse", something that would be half mouse and half human, in other to better define the limits in these matters, and to show how ridiculous many granted patents are.
