This is the greatest example of what an industrialist can do to a pure inventor. It is not the only example by far. Any number of inventions have been stolen from their inventors, not just this country but others. Aspirin, for example, was developed by a German chemist. Baer pharmaceuticals ripped off the formula and he got nothing for it, though he fought them in court for years. The number one most useful and best selling drug of all time.
