A Pox on Both your houses!

Trivial patents like these are an abuse of the patent system, and a waste of the court's time.

And TBH, with the modern pace of product development, I think it would be fair to shorten the life of all patents to 5 years instead of 25.

If you haven't got your great idea to market by then, it's time to let someone else try it.
