“Unlike in New York, which had a huge surge early in the pandemic but got it under control relatively quickly, Dr. Gottlieb said, ‘I think the Southern experience is more likely to mirror Brazil.‘“ The country AND the film, unfortunately.

I might be wrong, but I’d almost guess that the total number of true gameplay software patents—not file/network/systems/matchmaking/etc. ones—could probably be counted on two hands.

My strong sense is that “indies” as we know them post 2007 would not think to file software patents for practical, economic, and moral reasons.

Check Wizards of the Coast. They own a patent on the “tapping” mechanic in Magic: The Gathering, probably among others. Otherwise I’ve only seen lots of hardware utility patent, trademark, trade dress, and copyright infringement cases.
