"don't be evil": Google tries to patent a student's work after the student demos it in an interview


Sorry, maybe that was too cryptic. Those patenters (Google and whoever that other one was) were evil and should be treated like it.

@robey Why am I not surprised that Google has reached a new low with its pettiness?
(I mean, I don't think this is representative of all people at Google, but incidents such as this one will only bring negativity to Google's general public image, which is however it is already.)

@robey why am I not surprised... 🙄 I hope he slaps them with a lawsuit and gets a nice settlement at least
