Just to be clear here, we're not buying Sun Microsystems, we're buying the Sun. You know, Sol.

We already have a patent registered for "The large scale production of energy using Hydrogen conversion" and plan to begin legal action against other solar systems, but we also intend to purchase Sol and license the energy distribution to local retailers.

The good news is that anyone that does not pay will not be allowed to use energy from the Sun, which should reduce global warming considerably.

You would have to register the patent on the other systems before it can have a legal standing

Despite being a long time visitor to JavaRanch, I will have to object this move, as it would give JavaRanch unfair advantage and almost monopoly over other things, including my own business which currently holds the patent to Moon. I believe, following the precedence set by other large corporations, JavaRanch is likely to abuse their power in the market place which could bring forth catastrophic events like bright nights, dark days, global freezing, and even global dimming!
