Patents

Research often leads to some really great ideas being generated.  When that happens, the inventor is often compelled to work with an attorney to convert that idea into a lengthy, confounding, and largely incomprehensible technical document called a "patent" so that no one else will steal it.  Here is a list of my ideas that have been converted to legal form.
