The owl and the pussycat is delightful nonsense, but the rhyme demonstrates that just about anything brims with potential intellectual property, even a 100 year-old poem. Fortunately, at least from the perspective of a possible copyright infringer, Edward Lear died in 1888 and his poetry has lost copyright protection in the effluxion of time. Aside from copyright, the poem also contains a delightful trade mark and the glimmers of a revolutionary and patentable travel machine.
