Trademarked Men

 

This week Patrick is joined by a real-life human lawyer, Professor Winston Conrad, with the goal of understanding the world of intellectual property.

Winston explains the concepts of intellectual property through the history of guilds ownership and how the patents grew from this knowledge.

Patrick is shocked to learn that trademarks are designed to help the consumer.  Winston explains it was designed as a system to show the public what they planned on the purchase was verified and vetted.

How evil is Disney?  Like uber-evil?  Demigod evil?  Minor level evil?

We engage in some high level of roleplaying of Napster music theft.

Patrick then seeks some pro bono legal advice about his dream of becoming a Patreon grifter.

If there is any interest in paying for some high-quality Nixon mixtapes please send all inquires to almosteducational@gmail.com
