Re: I thought you were being a bit sarcastic, but


As much as I object to bs patents... I must be pedantic here.

You are looking at dependant claims and they should be read as giving specific versions of claim 2. The sillyness is to avoid someone else patenting claims 5 and 6 while accomplishing what your patent does and then suing you for the usage of your own patented invention no matter how obvious the additions were. Dependant claims often serve to illustrate how the invention is used. However, the independent claims are fair game.

Also, implementation details and how to create said invention are not put into the claims section...
