Summary:
You can patent pretty much anything these days as long as you're able to pay for it. When I looked into obtaining a US patent several years ago I was told to budget $20k for the patent process (1-2 years), plus another $5k annually for "patent maintenance" if the patent was actually granted. Only then could I have the "privilege" of suing those who infringe on my patent - by paying outrageous attorney and court fees, of course.
