As an Italian reader of this forum, I have learnt several acronyms (not only photografic):
AF: autofocus (in Italy we use autofocus as a noun, but not as a verb: "mettere a fuoco" sounds like "to put to focus")
AFAIK: as far as I know
AFMA: autofocus micro-adjustment
BS: Biased Score (thanks Neuro)
DSLR: in Italy we are lazy and we call it just "reflex"
FF: Full frame (also used in Italian)
Now my question is: can I apply for a patent for the new indispensable acronym WO
For example: let's write "I shoot WO" instead of "I shoot wide open".
If my new acronym patenting request is accepted, how much will I be able to charge as royalty for each use? Will I get rich?
P.S. Just before clicking the "Post" button, I made a google-check and realized that the acronym is not new [https://www.google.it/search?hl=it&source=hp&q=%22i+shoot+wo%22
An opportunity for easy money just vanished.
