    I think the most important thing to take away from this video is that Lego drove a child psychologist to suicide.

    nowadays no one has the term who can imitate. because nowadays who is diligent, he succeeds. if it's just an idea, it's a dream but it does not do what it takes to imagine it will never succeed. for example there is a dreamer to create a tool to go ahead with a certain theory. but he did not. on the other hand when someone else knows about the theory and succeeds in creating a tool. is it proper that the person wants to make a realization of the realm of the truth? whereas if she hoped she would be, whatever it may be. just a dream

    This is how the global satanists gain their power. They control the patent office, and also murder people to gain control of their patents and other property. * JK Rowling is innocent, of course. She received the content of her first 5 books as a vision from Satan. Yes, she is an unrepentant witch.

    My father created dos with talbert fisch in new jersey in the early 1980's for Burlington Industries. They both spoke and read bianary and both had worked for the US Army and its special programs in the sixties. My father had his masters in mathematics.
    The first dos ran the mom sys for textile factories in the US bahamas. This is fact. They worked 16 hour days to creat the software. Microsoft 1984. The origional microsoft.

    Ideas is not bound to a person. Just look at the jet engine. Three known people came up with the idea pretty much at the same time. So the patents were filed about the same time aswell.

    Any lawyer will tell you that an idea is JUST an idea (and, therefore, unprotected) until it's patented. That said many very similar things are patented every year. Proving that someone stole your "idea" is a high bar indeed.

    Dumbledore = Gandalf, not just looks but also their role, mentor, wise, and also old.

    I had to Google,"Reggie Brown" his story sounds like something that would have happened to a black man, minus the 100 million dollar settlement. Secondly I've never met nor heard of a white guy named Reggie before in my entire life lol.
    I wonder if Jack Daniels ever tried to compensate any of the descendants of Nearis Green since they admitted that they basically stole his whiskey recipe and became wealthy from it? That's a rhetorical question of course, we all know the answer.

    There are so many copyright now days you can't get one genuine ideas without bumping previous copyright. Plus it's not the idea that generate money but the effort to make people buy it. So huge role goes on marketing, management etc.

    Everything is stolen my friends. That's life. That's the shame we carry knowingly and unknowingly. But getting so successful after stealing the idea and making into a big empire is also a lot of work. Sometimes, the founder himself/herself don't know how to put those ideas into money-making-business.
    I am not supporting stealing. But getting insprired is one thing, and stealing is another thing.
    The whole truth we can never know....

    It's interesting to hear how others pronounce certain words and names. The NAtional BIscuit COmpany, or Nabisco, I typically hear pronounced differently. I know it's due to differences in how we pronounce things across the world, like how in the US we pronounce 'z' as 'zee' and not 'zed'.
    Just an odd thing I wanted to point out.

    With screenplays, production companies often reject them, unread, merely to protect against such copyright infringement claims. Still, there are plenty of instances where similar ideas arise at the same time and across many different industries. Activision's Atari hit Freeway and Konami/Sega's release of arcade hit Frogger were developed during the same timeframe, though neither influenced the other.

    In 1990 i was in a band and I came up with a riff to a song the singer had written, we put that song on a demo tape and sent it around various record companies and publishers in the U.K but nothing came of it, 5 years later i was at work when i heard that riff come on the radio, it was now the opening riff to a song called stupid girl by Garbage. Funny eh.

    well LEGO actually made the Kiddicraft blocs which were without the holes in the bottom which makes the LEGO blocs and sets being more solid apperently Kiddicraft blocks didn't hold together as well as the LEGO blocs
    in fact LEGO was close to not being the sucess that it is today their factory in Billund which is in the same place where it was started in 1948 it actually burned down in the 50's
