Man Copyrights His Own Name

Copyright Fosters: Ghislain Breton copyrighted his name and claims people must pay him $500,000 each time they use it.

Needless to say, he's now jailed for filing frivolous liens against lawyers and public officials. Liens are easy to file in New Hampshire and don’t require a judge’s signature. But removing them can be costly.
