Many years ago a new TV channel was introduced in Sewden. There were already four terrestrial channels sending transmissions, so it was decided that the new commercial channel should be called "5". The company running the channel was forced to change the name to Femman (Swedish for 'five') dure to the fact that a French TV company had already registered "5" as a company name.
I always thought that this was odd, - that you could register a number, preventing anyone else from using it as a company name.
Anyway, I was always meaning to do something similar to this, and reserve a little part of the English language for my own personal use. I finally did this last month. Amazingly, and to my surprise, I found that nobody has ever copyrighted the letter A. Yesterday I recieved confirmation that use of this letter is reserved solely for me.

What do you think?
Im I full of crop? In old fort?

Please keep this threed free from 'a's. I will do likewise.http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

[Answers please must be submitted without the use of the letter A (or a). You may use any other letter as a substitute for A, or use words that don't contain that letter.]

Well I for one will only utter my contempt for the uselessness of IPR on the huge internet, being the possessor of sole rights to the use of the first letter of our set of letters, will surely render you either very lonely (with no-one permitted to converse in writing with you) or very rich.

Good luck with your venture, I'm sure it will be interesting with some surprising events springing from it!

I don't belive you. you must provide documented proof you're now the sole owner of the letter. other wise we will continue to use this letter as we so choose.

BMW just lost a copyright lawsuit against Infiniti over the use of "M"...

(overly) simplified, I guess they were trying to claim the M was theirs due to previous extensive use (M3).

Who knew letters and numbers could be so lucrative to the parasite lawyers?
