    When I was 15 years old I made a air cooler for my mom so that she could stay cool while she was cooking, this machine is also able to absorb water from air (I didn't thought it was cool idea caz your normal air conditioner does it too). But 2 years ago (I guess) I saw a machine in unbox therapy that did the same thing my machine did (just getting water from air).

    All the good and moral inventors seem to get screwed over right. Communist government in Russia screwed that guy over real good. They probably stole all the profits and gave zero F’s.

    If you are ever tempted by the Left or Progressives that Socialism or Communism is better than Capitalism, think about Tetris. Yep, under a Socialist/Communist market system the government owns all propertty and that include intellectual property.
    Inventors who came out of China (the Hoverboard) and the Soviet Union were not allowed to earn profit from their creation. THAT is what you get... so if you won't profit off of a creation, what is the incentive to put your own money and time into a new invention? You will end up giving the government the rights to whatever you made and you don't get reimbursed for your own money and time you put into it.
    No wonder very few inventions came out of Socialist and Communist countries. Think about that the next time your professors and teachers try to sell you on the Utopian ideology of "no profits".

    A disc that you spin on your finger. How is that even worthy of a patent? Claiming that was a fidget spinner is a bit of a stretch.

    Khaldoun Walid Bek, who created Whatsup like an application by 2004 in Dubai with his friend as a Joint venture and at that time this was far better than current WhatsUp ( included email and fax interconnectivity, military-grade end to end encryption and proxy bypassing ability and much more), but couldn't raise enough money and remained a closed group application still 2012.

    When i was 8 year old (28 years ago), i attached a led and and a simple watch battery to a pen using tape, creating a pen with light on touch. Sadly my parents didn’t thought about registering this patent and so we missed a chance for great deal of money

    That spinner isn't the same as the fidget spinner. They didnt steal anything. They only got the rights for the spinning 1 handed toy itself. Not the actual product

    Hettinger filed for a patent on a one-part disc design in 1993, and was issued her patent in 1997. Even if all fees had been paid, her patent would have expired in 2014 (17 years from issuance). The modern fidget spinner was invented by Scott McCoskery in 2014, and became a craze in 2017, so the profits were McCoskery's to earn or lose.

    I just received approval of my pliable assembly patent, originally it was designed for holding hair in various buns and pom poms without tangles or pain and firmly.
    It can do a lot more.
    It straps, buckles and scrolls many things to secure them on handles, rods, canisters, makes bringing things with you easier and handier to use.
    I am sure there are many more ways to use it. I sell it as a two piece product (small and large), they can easily be connected to make a larger one.
    Connections can be as many as needed on either side.

    Yall missed the most important inventor dat didnt cash in and was robbed numerous times by other inventors!!! NIKOLA TESLA CMON!!!! Another one dat Edison famously stole from. The history books should be rewritten with Tesla as Americas greatest inventor(I know hes not American but all his greatest inventions were created in America)and Edison as a con man!!!

    The people who couldn’t afford the patents sadly also couldn’t have come up with the money to get the business off the ground, let alone turn it into what it is today. It still sucks, that’s the truth. Those products would have stagnated on the market, unable to meet demand or reach the same amount of people that these patent thief’s could.

    Happens all the time. Apart from the accidental discoveries, penicillin for example, every invention is like the peak of a pyramid. Multiple ideas from a magnitude of people combined into one by a single person who gets all the cred and fame. How fair is that? I'd say that for every invention there are hundreds or thousands of ppl who had their ideas "stolen".
