April 26, 2017
Today, April 26th, is both International Intellectual Property Day and (in the United States) National Pretzel Day. These are two topics in which I have, respectively, a professional and personal interest, and as it is 9:00 pm I have three more hours to find a way to mark the occasion by combining them.

How is intellectual property like a pretzel? People are indifferent to the complexities of both. Those who think pretzels are just salty breadsticks are missing out out a world of flavor, and people who ignore IP will quickly change their tunes if they ever create something.
