Last week while I was out in my yard, I found a magnolia leaf with a curious marking.
So, now Mother Nature is copyrighting her leaves?
Would this fall under artistic works? Maybe discovery or invention? Most definitely an innovation and creative expression. I mean, who else has the market on trees? (The Big Guy excluded, of course.)
So why the copyright mark? I wondered if Mother Nature felt threatened by someone who may be hot on her heels in the creation realm. With all the cloning going on, you can’t blame her. Clearly she may be nervous that some scientist is going to horn in on her territory.
I’m trying to figure out if Mom will try to register the leaf with the PTO in Northern Virginia, though…
