In case you didn't know, Amazon recently put out a patent on White Seamless Studio Photography which a lot of photographers found to be quite bogus. You can read our article about that here. Colbert put out his video of him ripping on Amazon with some pretty humorous jokes and going a bit in depth into the patent they filed.
The Phoblographer said on their post of this video that "(Colbert) must have read our collective minds." I agree! I personally thought the patent being put out by Amazon was a bit random and weird and to see what Colbert was saying/joking about was spot on. It's been a few weeks now since Amazon filed their patent and a lot of people are still joking or scratching their heads over the entire situation. In private groups on Facebook, I've seen comments like "I guess I'm going to patent shooting with 1pm sunlight" or "I plan on filing a patent on using off camera flash in photos."
Colbert ended his video by deciding since Amazon was going to patent the seamless white backdrop setup, he was going to ultimately patent patents.
