Shades of Galambos: Along the lines of “if you build it, they will come,” we have the IP analogue, “if government enacts a right to obtain property rights in arbitrary, intangible ‘things,’ they will apply for it”: Man Claims Copyright of His Name, FindLaw (AP), 2002-05-16. Sounds like something–dare I use his name?–Galambos would do (see discussion of Galambos in this article, at footnotes 49-53).

Update: see also Galambos and Other Nuts.
