    I find it a bit worrying when companies can get broad, sweeping patents for stuff like this. It was meant to protect original ideas. It wasn't done on 1 April was it?

    From what I read, it was more about protecting Amazon from any similar patents filed by anybody else. They don't give two hoots about our product shots.

    So how long before someone patents the use of sunlight to illuminate a photograph?

    I covered that a long time ago. A few well respected people in this forum will be receiving their bills in the near future.
