Patent Escape

July 24, 2007 at 5:18 am 1 comment

Four enterprising prison inmates have been accused of trying to use copyright law to escape. They allegedly copyrighted their own names and then demanded millions of dollars from jail officials for using them without permission. Russell Dean Landers, Clayton Heath Albers, Carl Ervin Batts and Barry Dean Bischof sent demand notices for payment to the warden of El Reno federal prison in Oklahoma City, according to the prosecutors.

They allegedly filed claims against his property, then hired someone to seize his vehicles, freeze his bank accounts and change the locks on his house.
