As Todd pointed out, this appears to be an undecided
issue. But again, we are wrangling over words that
have by dint of community norms, become increasingly
obscure. As far as I am concerned, what is legal
is not necessarily right regardless of the payoff
but that is certainly only one opinion.
So get patents like fire extinguishers: until your
house is on fire, they are ugly wall ornaments.

If there is no protection, it is not IP = intellectual property.
"No right without a remedy." Short of patent protection, ideas/concepts
are not IP.
