Like the guy who went to court and quashed 21 of the 26 parts of amazon's  
'one-click' patent, because he was miffed that a book took too long too

"He said at the time that it was a simply a hobby borne of an interest in  
patents and a frustration with an order for a book from Amazon that took  
too long to arrive."
