Have a look at

http://webshop.ffii.org/ ;

most of the "patents" listed there are just outrageous trivial (sending
a gift to an address other than your own, entering a rebate code, credit
card payment, or the webshop itself), and yet all these are patents
granted at least in Europe... Intellectual property? "Innovation" even?
I hardly do think so...
