Legal All the way back in 2007 (The Year Gilmore Girls ended), a company called IP Innovation sued Red Hat and Novell over a patent related to the concept of virtual desktops. It seems like common sense hasn't been drained entirely from the US justice system, since yesterday, the courts declared said patent invalid.

Having restrictions on whether on not you can make your own copies of (insert thing here) is unjust and should only be for very limited times, not life plus seventy years.
