I have a client that I am helping to get into the Guinness Book of World Records. For what? Well that has to wait until the record is published, but suffice it to say that it got me wondering about world records as intellectual property. Ok, I know they’re NOT technically IP, but I’ve always had a fascination with getting world record, so I figure helping someone else do it would be good enough… for now. My day will come.
In any event, I ran across this article describing the exploits of DK’ers (Donkey Kong’ers) setting world record after world record at the game. An interesting read. But a warning, there is a documentary about attempts to break the Donkey Kong world record, and the article is essentially a spoiler to the movie (in case you planned to watch it).
