So go ahead and release your movie. Just keep track of how many tickets you sell.
Read Bolinski’s rant at Richard Dawkins’ website. It’s pretty funny.
My guess is either Bolinski got some advice from a real intellectual property attorney and/or got quietly told to back down by Harvard who doesn’t want its name dragged through the mud. I hope Doctor Bolinsky now knows that to protect styles, processes, and algorithms important to his company he must seek design and utility patents. Copyrights simply don’t protect those things.
