Unfortunately, no occurrences of any IP-related terms...
Another fun exercise is running Tradmark‘s lyrics through an AI-supported patent search engine (www.octimine.com) . The most pertinent patents can be found in IPC main class A and relate to various sanitary and health devices for bitches.

Alone the concept of ideas having consequences (in VR at least) may give rise to interesting philosophical discussions ...
