Town Gets Patent On Being the Center of Europe

An anonymous reader writes “And you thought software patents were going to far? How about geography patents? Apparently, as a part of the weird fight over what place in Europe represents the “geophysical center of Europe,” the Austrian town of Frauenkirchen has received a patent (Austrian patent AM 7738/2003) declaring it the center of Europe. Not clear how one ‘infringes’ on such a patent, but then again, it’s not clear why anyone’s patenting this either.”
