    Patent Trolling should be punishable by public execution with a youtube livestream.

    I claim patent on conception and since you were concieved before you gained "thought", you owe me that 600 millions of dollars :p
  5. We require at least two separate internets, say www and yyy.
    One for the 'free stuff' and the other for all that over which copy-right, patent-right, or design-right is claimed.
    I have difficulty attempting to determine if 'stuff' is free of rights claims.
    So let me sign on to a 'net' where all 'stuff' ( search-engines, players, programs, data, docs. and pics. etc.) is free of rights claims.

    Were people to up-load things over which rghts claims are made, this shall be the responsibility of the original transfer/up-loader to the 'free stuff' web.
    How this is policed is another matter.
    I have suggested that all UK web pages shall carry identifiers, but have heard no more.
