Patent on Sledging?

During the English Test Series (~Aug 2007), Indians were pretty chirpy on the field. They were very excited with their own efforts. "Let's file for a 'patent' on 'sledging'" they chorused!

The lawyer had a look at the patent application and quickly rejected it! Why?

Sledging cannot be patented! You cannot patent a Prior Art!

The Indians were left stumped ;-)
