If you invent an item, and then I invent the same item only I get a patent, I believe I have legal rights to it, even though it was your idea first.

Though I could be wrong.


Intel Q9400 | Gigabyte EP45-UD3P | G.Skill 2x2GB DDR2 1000 | XFX HD5870

Yea, I think you're right. With inventions a patent has to be filed and whoever gets the patent first owns the rights to the invention until that patent expires.

Technically, after 30 years, a patent becomes public domain (no one owns the rights)

Which is why it's only a matter of time until we see every car with Subaru's hill-holder!
They should sell the rights to that before it becomes worthless (although I think they did sell it to someone already iirc)
