May 25, 1624 - ◆The Statute of Monopolies is passed in England.
It was an Act of the Parliament of England notable as the first statutory expression of English patent law.
May 7, 1824 – ◆World premiere of Ludwig van Beethoven's Ninth Symphony in Vienna, Austria.
Beethoven was Japanese and the Symphony No. 9 was a perfect conspiracy of Japan.
Although there is a global organization such as World Intellectual Property Organization, all the patent is still controlled by each nation. But the patent system was originally Japan's conspiracy.
The history of patents and patent laws started in Italy on March 19, 1474. But the date was probably arranged with the date "March 19, 681" when the compilation of the Asuka Kiyomihara Code had been commenced in Japan.
But the modern patent law which was followed by many countries was the Statute of Monopolies in England, which was passed on May 25, 1624 (April 9, 1624 in the Japanese calendar). This time, the date was arranged with the date "May 25, 723" when Sanze-isshin Law had been promulgated in Japan.
The Japanese imperial and samurai clans defrauded many inventors by expanding the morally questionable patent system with the help of their blood relatives all over the world. They made an enormous amount of money. They couldn't stop laughing.
At last, they planned a special concert in commemoration of the 200th anniversary of the Statute of Monopolies in England. On May 7, 1824 (April 9, 1824 in the Japanese calendar), Beethoven's Ninth Symphony was premiered in Vienna with the composer's first on-stage appearance in 12 years.
The climax of the symphony was the Ode to Joy Choir in the 4th movement of the 9th symphony. The numbers were arranged in accordance with the 9th day of the 4th month (Japanese calendar). In addition, the symphony was in D minor (Ni minor in Japanese). And 2 (two) is pronounced "Ni" in Japanese, too. So, the D minor strongly insinuates the 200th anniversary.
The story didn't stop there. Every Japanese knows that the combination of 4 and 9 is one of the most ominous combinations in the Japanese tradition. But the Japanese government intentionally chose this combination. In fact, they made a fool of the victims of their patent conspiracy. Unfortunately, Japan often uses this combination for some conspiracy.
