like to know, how do you keep big business from keeping you in court that businesses will sue even if they lose to end your invention? Does the inventor get to follow the idea to an actual invention? So that's a great question. And the answer is yes. Like, it used to be a lot harder for inventors, to sue big businesses. If
any inventors out there that have not seen the movie flash of genius, I recommend they see flash of genius. It's about the intermittent wiper blade,
inventor and how it took him, I don't know, 2030 years before he got his day in court. That was years and years and years ago. And today, the cards are stacked in your favor as an inventor, because even if you don't have deep pockets, if you have a strong patent, and you have a strong case of infringement, there are law firms that will take your case on contingency. And if you're familiar with personal injury law, you've seen the advertisements by attorneys, no recovery, no fee. So if you get into an accident, there are lawyers that can partner with you and take a percentage of the recovery. This used to not be the case for for inventors. There used to not be a contingency fee availability for inventors, that that has changed. So but you do have to have a really strong bulletproof patent. You do have to have a clear case of infringement. But if you do then there is there's a lot there are law firms out there that will take the case on contingency. I'm in South Florida several years ago, an individual inventor sued Home Depot and 120 $5 million in damages for a protective device for a cutting saw that the inventor had patented. And this was an individual inventor wasn't a large company and they took on Home Depot and one there has been individual inventors that have sued Walt Disney World and in successfully so I wouldn't give up is you know, is it? Is it as easy to take on a big business if you're to take on Goliath if you're David No, but can it be done? Absolutely. Has it been done? Absolutely.
