    Curious collection of stories on "CBS Sunday Morning" on 23 September 2018

    The cover story on Sandy Hook was sad: A battle currently pits parents still mourning the loss of their children in the Sandy Hook school shooting against purveyors of the most mean-spirited and outlandish of myths. Our Cover Story is reported by Tony Dokoupil

    Kurt Andersen was quoted in the piece, in turn quoting Patrick Moynihan:


    “As Daniel Patrick Moynihan famously said 30 years ago, many times, repeatedly, ‘You’re entitled to your own opinions but not to your own facts,'” said Kurt Andersen. “He was kind of joking back then. And we’ve come to this place where many, many, many millions of people feel absolutely entitled to their own facts.”

    Although the details of the case against Alex Jones were not enumerated, Floyd Abrams was quoted:


    Floyd Abrams is a respected First Amendment lawyer, famed for defending The New York Times’ publication of the Pentagon Papers. “This is a very tough case for Alex Jones to win,” he said, “because what he has said is so appalling.”

    He says Jones may have gone beyond the protections of free speech, and the consequences may be severe.

    The Almanac feature touching on “Typhoid Mary” was a bit grim: And now a page from our “Sunday Morning” Almanac: September 23, 1869, 149 years ago today … the day that saw the birth, in rural Ireland, of Mary Mallon – remembered today as “Typhoid Mary.”

    The piece by Dr. Sanjay Gupta somewhat indirectly addressed the Kavanaugh / Ford issue. Although the connection was made clear in the prefatory text –The question of whether alcohol affects memory hangs over the current Supreme Court confirmation battle. Here with some answers is Dr. Sanjay Gupta: –, the indicated conclusion was a bit oblique, with the story ending on a suggestion “to improve your memory”:


    Truth is: When it comes to alcohol and memory, people assume a lot of things – and a lot of those assumptions are wrong.

    (…)

    One study last year showed that in this situation mild- to moderately-intoxicated people had very similar recall as sober people.

    Now, there is a thing known as “blackout drunk.” That is not the same as “passed out drunk.” Someone who is blacked-out drunk may still be talking and walking. But they might be totally amnestic to the event, meaning they have no memory of it.

    The biggest culprit is not necessarily how much you drank, but how quickly they drank it – the binge drinker.

    With memory and alcohol you also have to consider how much time has passed. While a mild- to moderately-intoxicated person can remember things pretty well in the short term, their long term memories are much more difficult to retrieve.

    And to understand why, it helps to understand how memory works. You take in sensory information – see, hear, feel – and that almost immediately gets transferred to short-term memory. From there, short-term memories get encoded into long-term memory.

    It’s this last phase where alcohol seems to have the most impact. For someone who’s intoxicated, that encoding into long-term memory often doesn’t occur very well, or at all. And that is why days later someone may have a hard time remembering something that was so vivid earlier, but can’t retrieve the memory from the long-term stores, because the memories were never there in the first place.

    [Then, the narrative abruptly and oddly switches from absence of long term memory through binge intoxication (related to the viewpoint of the Ford scenario AND why Kavanaugh might not remember) to a recommendation to the general public]

    If you want to improve your memory, the best things you can really do: pay attention when something is happening; that helps a lot. And don’t forget sleep, because it’s when you sleep that your body consolidates and transfers your short-term memories to long-term memoriesm the kind you’ll have for the rest of your life.

    Christine Blasey Ford, Kavanaugh accuser, commits to public hearing this Thursday , including


    In a statement on Sunday [23 Sept. 2018], Ford’s lawyers Debra Katz, Lisa Banks and Michael Bromwich said their client “has agreed to move forward” with a public hearing before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday, Sept. 27, at 10 a.m. on Capitol Hill. The legal team said that “important progress” had been made with committee staffers after a week of negotiations over the format and conditions of her testimony.

    “Despite actual threats to her safety and her life, Dr. Ford believes it is important for Senators to hear directly from her about the sexual assault committed against her,” the attorneys wrote. Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley confirmed the hearing would be taking place on Thursday in a statement late Sunday, calling it a “continuation of the hearing to consider” Kavanaugh’s nomination. Following Ford’s testimony, the statement said, Kavanaugh will then “appear before the committee.”

    While Tom Gauld‘s humorous look at authorship (right) may not accord with any formal statistical breakdown, anyone who has worked in the field of copyright over the decades will know that there is more than a ring of truth about it: visitations from the dead and divine inspiration have each had their day in court.  Conventional one-person-one-book authorship still predominates, and the demand among readers for light autobiographies of young and sometimes semi-literate sports personalities, sympathetically ghosted by a skilled narrator–cum-amanuensis, ensures that ghost written works will continue to occupy a substantial proportion of supermarket bookshelves for some time to come.  Talented animals are better known for their artistic works, though, and the 9.5% score for ‘nobody knows’ category looks like an overestimate now that the attractions of celebrity authorship and the legal protection of authors’ moral rights make it more profitable to ensure that everyone knows who you are when you write a novel.  Anyway, this cartoon inspired Merpel to ask readers which categories of author Tom Gauld may have overlooked

    Article and sidebar poll on the European Inventor Award.  On Thursday of last week fellow Kat Darren composed a blogpost that took a sharp and unfavourable look at the European Inventor Award. Apart from receiving a bagful of readers’ comments, this post also launched a sidebar poll which has attracted over 200 responses so far — most of which are not at all supportive either of the event itself or of the European Patent Office’s involvement in it. However, there’s plenty of time — ten days — for this to change, so do take the opportunity to cast your vote. If you never visit the IPKat’s home page because you only read posts as emails, you will find the poll on the top of the side bar on the left hand side of that page.

    Sadly, there’s no monopoly
    on financial disappointment

    While on the subject of the European Inventor Award, the IPKat received the following comment by email from Bojan Pretnar. Bojan, who was the first Director of the Slovenian IP Office and held that position for two decades, was also a World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) official from 2000 to 2010 and is a proud alumnus of the Max-Planck Institute, Munich. Writes Bojan:

    “During my work at WIPO I was quite frequently, though informally and rather softly, criticising the WIPO medal awards, mainly on the basis of a sad personal experience back in late eighties of the previous century, when a poor inventor from my country (now Slovenia, then still Yugoslavia) was awarded by a similar national award for his invention. The award encouraged the man to spend all his money on filing patent applications abroad, notably in the UK and USA; while the patent was granted in the UK, it was rejected in the USA, where the inventor had the greatest hope to sell or license it. Eventually, the poor man went bankrupt and immediately thereafter he died from a sudden heart attack.

    The lesson I learned from the case is that such awards not only are commercially meaningless, but may even convey false signals to inventors. Though this lesson may not be relevant for the EPO’s awards, it may shed some additional light on such practices. In any case, let me repeat that you are absolutely right that granting such awards are not the task of EPO – at least not under the European Patent Convention.

    To be fair, invention awards competitions do not normally come with any promise of financial success.  However, the point is well made that there is no necessary connection between the commercial potential of a patent on the one hand and inventive merit, social utility or other non-market criterion by which an invention’s excellence may be measured — and this link often exists in the mind of the inventor, who all too often needs no encouragement to believe in the commercial value of his invention.

    Around the weblogs. The 1709 Blog features a post by our good friend Marie-Andrée Weiss on the copyright status — or lack of it — of a 1967 photo of Jimi Hendrix. Over on the Class 46 European trade mark blog, Edith Van den Eede explains the outcome of an opposition to the filing of an application to register as a Community trade mark the figurative mark PORTOBELLO ROAD No. 171 LONDON DRY GIN LONDON ENGLAND, based on nothing other than the word PORTO — which happens to be a Protected Designation of Origin [this doesn’t seem right to Merpel, who likes a gin or two and can’t see any justifiable real-world reason why the applicant’s mark can’t be registered for gin when the PORTO PDO is for Port …]. Over on IP Tango, Patricia Coverrubia, in “Brazil: Federal Court decides for cancellation of a trademark without prior opposition at INPI”, shows how even a fairly conservative and formal legal system can throw up the occasional procedural surprise.
