From the Weird and Wacky Copyright Files . . . Man With Copyrighted Name Tries To Get Out Of Ticket

From the News section of : A man referred to as "Daniel" claims to have copyrighted his own name " 'To regain freedoms that are supposed to be ours but are restrained by ... well, I call it a police state.' "

He argues that writing tickets is how police make money, and that since they receive compensation, so, too, should he, as it is a business transaction.

"'When they write you a ticket, it's commercial trade. There's something for them to gain monetarily or whatever,' Daniel said.

For police to write his name down, Daniel said that they must pay a user's fee of $500,000 each time it is used. "

Think this will work?
