UP - Tuesday, Dec. 11, 2008 - Mother Nature has filed a civil lawsuit against the Society of American Physicists for allegedly circumvening her copy protection methods on the universe.

"I was quite shocked to learn that there are thousands of these 'scientists' who do nothing all day but try to reverse engineer my intellectual property" Mother Nature stated in her complaint.

Lawyers for the physicists insist that their clients are merely trying to expand the knowledge of humanity and understand the wonder that is the universe; that they have no plans to copy Mother Nature's methods to create there own, competing, universe.

Mother Nature filed her suit under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act which prohibits the circumvention of copy protections. Her suit only targets those physicists within the United States but Mother Nature said she is contemplating legal action in other countries around the world. Germany, for instance, has a reputation for producing great physicists such as Albert Einstein. A spokesperson for Mother Nature declined to answer questions as to whether she would seek damages from Einstein's descendants.

The suit seeks damages of $755 per atom (or part thereof) that have been used, directly or indirectly, in the pursuit of "decompiling the universe."

The suit is Mother Nature Industries vs. Society of American Physicists, et al.

The ultimate results of the suit won't matter -

the Chinese will not recognize the intellectual property or copy protection.

I know you think you understand what you thought I said,
but I'm not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant!
