Lorem Ipsum Copyright Claim

An ex professor from Sapienza University of Rome is threatening to turn the world of website designers, printers and typesetters upside down by claiming the copyright of Lorem ipsum.

Professor Maxilanus Vitrioli claims to have found 15th century manuscript that name his far distance relative as the original creator of Lorem ipsum, and also claims to have discovered a second document that he claims grants his relative and subsequent surviving relatives full intellectual property rights.

Experts are now saying that if both ducuments can be authenticated Professor Vitrioli (the last living relative), could be sitting on a potential goldmine. They go on to say, that any person, business or governing body found to be using more than 450 characters of Lorem ipsum in any one block of text could potentialy face litigation and claims of copyright abuse from Professor Vitrioli.

Other experts claim, not only will Professor Vitrioli have a very strong case against anyone using Lorem ipsum from the day of judgement, he will also be able to backdate all claims to the date when he first went public with his claims.

“Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipisicing elit, sed do eiusmod tempor incididunt ut labore et dolore magna aliqua. Ut enim ad minim veniam, quis nostrud exercitation ullamco laboris nisi ut aliquip ex ea commodo consequat. Duis aute irure dolor in reprehenderit in voluptate velit esse cillum dolore eu fugiat nulla pariatur. Excepteur sint occaecat cupidatat non proident, sunt in culpa qui officia deserunt mollit anim id est laborum”

Incidentally, the above Lorem ipsum has 447 characters ;o)

Just in case Professor Vitrioli or his legal team read this.
