Wanna follow in NTPs footsteps? Then head down to Marshall, Texas to the court of Judge T. John Ward. Seems Johnny likes to award patents quickly and easily, and almost always sides with patent holders in any lawsuits. Great news, kids! Now just make some futuristic shit up, get it patented by Judge Ward and wait for the bucks to pile in when a real company comes up with a similar idea. I love the law, don't you?
