Al Gore is optimistic regarding his pending patent application for the Internet.

Sources confirmed yesterday that former Vice President Al Gore has filed an intellectual property claim regarding the Internet, also known as the World Wide Web. Gore, who in 2005 declared that he was responsible for inventing the Internet, reportedly intends to seek more than 10 years' royalties arising from Americans' use of the Web.

In order to preserve his royalty rights, Gore filed a patent application, aiming to prevent rogue agents from such groups as Hackers Anonymous and WikiLeaks from accessing the Web and/or profiting materially therefrom. Gore's patent attorney stated that Gore is optimistic regarding the approval of his patent application, and noted that while Americans initially expressed skepticism at Gore's 2005 claim that he invented the Internet, they have since been "globally warming" to the idea.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
