German Patent Law recently rejected a Saudi inventor's request to patent a remote-controlled Cyanide-dispensing GPS chip which he claimed could be used to monitor 'undesirables'. There were two basic models in the Patent - Model A, which could be placed under the skin, would allow authorities the ability to track criminals, fugitives, immigrants, and the like throughout the world. And Model B, well, perhaps his own words describe it the best :D "Model B would have an extra function - a dose of cyanide to remotely kill the wearer without muss or fuss if authorities deemed he'd become a public threat."

I say we grant him the patent on one condition, that he tests the functionality of the invention himself.

If it successfully dispenses cyanide into his system remotely, he gets the patent.

That shouldn't be patented and shouldn't be passed.

lol, the government already has enough control and surveillance, over suspects and regular citizens of not only America... other countries as well... only through the extension called the 'Army'*


* Used in general context including the marines, army, airforce and other armed forces used outside of America that are operated by American Pentagon thing.

No offence at all. In fact just last night I watched "Steal This Movie" which is the story of Abbie Hoffman. There was a funny part about how they were planning a protest at the pentagon and someone made the point that in nearly every religion the pentagon is a sign of evil. Then they were out in front of it trying to count how many people it would take to form a full circle around the building when they were confronted by guards.
