      someone making money on an idea or ideas ... because I see idea people as having their own special niche in the societal/working structure, but ... I don't think that idea people should be overly compensated simply because they offer something unique that no one else has ever done. A garbage man collects trash every week and his personal position is totally expendable since any person can do it ... but does that make him any less valuable as a service ... than an inventor? I say no.

      If I invent something and either build and sell it or make a deal with some company to build and sell it ... I am really in no different position than a carpenter who builds special furniture and then finds others building knock-offs of his furniture a year or two later. It's tough ... but that's life. As long as they don't put MY NAME on their product ... THEY put in the same amount of work as I do in producing the device or furniture and then it's just a matter of competition to see who can build it more economically.
