This ranks up there with Barnes and Noble citing really cheesy 70's British Sci Fi ( much cheesier even than The Doctor attacking himself with a prop tentacle or a prop 6' space locust ) as prior art in the rebuttal to Microsoft's outlandish patent claims.

Except, that wasn't an amicus brief, it was a response from the defendant. They also cited 2001 and lots of stuff broadcast before Microsoft existed. It was brilliant.

Anyway, read Masnick's entire article, it's worth it. Then read the brief as Masnick didn't quote all the fun parts.

"Apparently because Plaintiffs’ delicate sensibilities were offended, they clutched their pearls and filed this suit."

Bob has so much indignant entitlement.
