As of September, it would seem that you may very well have to pay a license fee if your snowman is anything like “perfect”.

The 8,011,991th United States Patent is assigned to “Apparatus for Facilitating the Construction of a Snow Man/Woman,” granted to inventor Ignacio Marc Asperas of Melville, NY. The patent was filed on Jan. 31, 2006 but was just granted on Sept. 6, 2011.

Though written in a conversational way… it’s serious!

US inventor finally granted patent for snowman construction

I look forward to reading about the first time THAT one gets contested…

[Thanks B for bringing this one to my attention.]
