December 5, 2006 Here’s a New Inexpensive Tag for You ;)
Smileys as tags, what a revolutionary idea. So I patented the idea, universally.
Licence fee is 0.01 € per occurence. If you want to use 😉 as a tag, please contact me. Otherwise I’ll send you a cease-and-desist letter.
Just kidding of course. Because this concept is now published, it can not be patented and utilized for real. Reminds of the old story in the Onion: “Microsoft patents zeroes and ones”.
