Letters From Dada Land: The Patent

To Whom It May Concern,

We wish to inquire about the possibility, and moreover the probability of acquiring a patent for a new invention we’ve created.

During the past year, we’ve been working on creating our new recorded album. In doing so we realized that not only were we creating new compositions but we have actually invented a new genre of music. It’s called Happy Face Music.

The music actually has a unique and direct correlation to the listeners mood and facial expressions.

We’ve discussed with Dr. Martin E.P. Seligman who is the Director of the Center for Positive Psychology and Professor of Psychology at Penn State University who said “we ran a number of control tests against other styles of music and found that these recordings do in fact have a definitive positive impact on the listener due, in part, to its unique spectogram soundprint.”

Now, we’re not sure if you can trademark a music genre but we wish to protect our valuable creation to the fullest extent of the law.

Please let us know if this is possible and the next steps.

Yours,

Stefan Engblom and Olof Cornéer – Presidents of Dada Land
