I think it is up to the US administration to act. I read that someone once wrote a computerprogram that could generate every melody possible and print it out. He tried to get the copyrights but faild. Remember the piracy of Monsanto and the tango between Apple and Samsung. The patenting swindle has gone bezerk. Some artist patented the name Allah and perhaps even the word Buddha wil become a protected trademark.
