Expression of an idea, indeed but one can easily express a similar idea and get away with it, I guess all this is subjective. Much like a ref in a footy match., he has laws of the game to follow.. One ref in one game may give a penalty another ref would not. Law in gaming is the same me thinks.

and

https://www.techdirt.com/articles/20140507/04102327144/us-patent-office-grants-photography-against-white-background-patent-to-amazon.shtml

I was shocked after reading. How can it be a company has a valid protetion for a color? It's like the german telekom which protected the magenta color for business logo's. And they protected it heavily.... but my feeling is with the US trade contract things went down the toilete anyway. All this trivial patents are the dead for any small company. Bigger one are able to protect by defend with their own properties the other company may strive or they give them a deal to use specific one to sue others. That's why companies invent one patent after the other to build some kind of patent shield.
 
it is not the problem to slept to court it is finally all the time above you... at any time - specially if you are too sucessful with your own business - amazon may kicks in and interrupts your business.

if you'll got threat of violence, insults etc on regular base than you'll know nothing changed since 300 a.D. as people believe the message would alter by using those methods on the messenger.

Lol, I guess people see what you say as personal insults. Really they should take it as advice and if they want to carry on then that's up to them also.
