     Hello,

  James Gosling proved that you can patent the light switch:

http://patft.uspto.gov/netacgi/nph-Parser?Sect1=PTO2&Sect2=HITOFF&p=1&u=%2Fnetahtml%2FPTO%2Fsearch-bool.html&r=44&f=G&l=50&co1=AND&d=PTXT&s1=%22gosling,+james%22.INNM.&OS=IN/%22gosling,+james%22&RS=IN/%22gosling,+james%22

  What is a proper name for filing such patents? Maybe jobsing?

     Take care
     Oliver

It's not clear to me that it would be granted because, if I recall correctly, it has to not be obvious how to do it to someone who practices in the field.  My patents are from 2000 and 2001, so it's been a while that I've been through the patent execution process.  That being said, it may be a bit of a heads-up, be on the lookout.
