Donald Duck: Patent Foiler

Apparently, someone figured out a way to raise sunken ships using 
"smaller, more buoyant bodies" and was awarded patents in 1965 in the UK 
and Germany.  They tried to get a Dutch patent as well, but the Dutch 
refused the patent because there was "prior art": a 1945 Carl Barks 
Donald Duck story.

Incidentally, sorry about my last e-mail subject.  That should have read 
"Warren Spector to Pen Ducktales _Comic_" not Game.
