US Copyright, patent, trademark office doesn't know what they are doing. Dr Gary Michelson

This blog entry is not directly related to Dr. Gary Michelson but it is related to the patent, trademark, copyright office. This has to do with Bikram Choudhury series of 26 hatha yoga poses. June 2012 I was in Federal Court Central District of California listening to a ridiculous case ahead of me. Some guy said he owned the copyright to a series of hatha yoga poses which have been around hundreds of years. He said he owned the "series of poses." He copyrighted it in 1979 I think as an audio tape or written class manual called basic yoga class.

This other yoga guy was doing a similar series of poses in a hot gym. Judge Dolly Gee laughed and said "you can't expect me to believe you can copyright a series of very old yoga poses." She said "Copyright relates to the words you use to write and describe something. Books, music, video can be copyrighted. A series of old yoga poses cannot." The defendant's attorney had a very eloquent yet funny reply about how crazy it was that he even tried to copyright it.

Get this, the copyright office gave him the copyright. Bikram Choudhury just kind of went with it from there stating he owned the "series of poses" and no one else could use them without paying him a license fee. This guy Bikram Choudhury is a crazy delusional person. Below is an article about him and this case.


Judge Dolly Gee or another judge sent in the final opinion and order to the copyright office. Copyright office stated "perhaps we were wrong in giving him the copyright." Copyright just takes your money and stamps your document. You do whatever you want with your copyright.

In the above case the defendant who was using the yoga poses has decided to distance himself from crazy Bikram Choudhury and change the name of his yoga and methods. A very wise decision. Bikram Choudhury has been sued by a few women for sexual harassment and assault. Search Google news or check out my blog which has all the lawsuits.

My point in this blog post is that a patent, trademark, copyright office takes your papers, money and just stamps them. They are not legal scholars who argue whether or not you have a legal claim to a patent, trademark, or copyright. They leave that for the parties to sort out themselves by suing each other. This is a flaw in the system. No one should have approved a copyright for 26 centuries old hatha yoga poses. I have a feeling the patent office probably should not have approved Gary Michelson's patent for the threaded spinal cage. It was invented and made by others years earlier. He just copyrighted it first. I don't believe Gary Michelson legally deserves the patent. The threaded spinal cage should not be patented by anyone or it should be patented by the two doctors who invented and made it years before Gary Michelson.
