    A lot of sayings are patented or trademarked.

    I think a big difference is what they do with their rights. I don't think anyone envisioned Apple trying mobile device world domination when they patented their stuff until Dr evil started showing up in the court houses.
    "I'm holding the patents for ransom until you pay me 1 million dollars muhaha" . Uh, doc that's chump change now, better find a judge in California and ask for billions
