Google Patent search

Everexpanding almighty google has a new service: The Google patent search.

Thanks to Greg KH I know now about some crucial patents, like the one on a Monkey shaped camera bag.

I’m not saying I am against patents per se. (although the evolutionary nature of software development should make it *very* difficult to get one, if at all). However, seeing the level of invention that is actually patented, I am not so sure the current system isn’t completely broken.
