[OT] Microsoft filled patent applications for scoped and immutable types
Microsoft being microsoft again.

http://www.freepatentsonline.com/y2014/0196015.html - DECLARATION OF 
LIFETIME OF RESOURCE REFERENCE
This contains description of scoped classes, etc.

http://www.freepatentsonline.com/y2014/0196008.html - IMMUTABLE OBJECT TYPES

I really hope patent office will reject these applications.

It looks like this applies only to the inference of immutability
based on the structure of the type and its methods, as opposed to
a declaration of immutability.

D has had immutable for years! Surely that counts as prior art?? Does
the patent office accept prior art submissions?

It's FAR more than just MS. For example, Apple's just as bad. Just look 
at Steve Job's undying vendetta against Google (by way of Samsung as a 
proxy target).
