And that's something few realise. An inventor comes up with a great concept, probably even manges to raise the funds to build a prototype, even manges to pay for the patent... but then the patent has to be renewed every single year, and it's not cheap.
Many inventors simply can't afford to keep renewing patents and they lose the product to some big company.
