Gary Michelson reinvents the wheel and sues original wheel inventor
"No need to reinvent the wheel" is a common phrase. It of course means why make a new product when you already have a fine product. This is similar to Gary Michelson's Prize not to mention his silly paperclip patent. He is offering $25M for a one dose sterilant for male, female, cats and dogs and another $50M for research into said product. We already have drugs that do that. Why reinvent the wheel? In this case if Gary reinvents the wheel he can force all wheel inventors to pay him a license or stop making wheels. He can sell his wheel and make money just like the threaded spinal cage patent. It's all about putting more money in Gary's pocket. Let me explain.
Right now we have drugs that will permanently sterilize animals. They've already been tested. The drugs were invented, discovered, made many years ago by other people. Gary Michelson knew this before he offered his "Prize." Gary does not care about ending pet overpopulation. He is fine watching millions of animals being needlessly born, living short inhumane lives, dying on their own on the street or killed in an animal shelter. He could be using his money to buy and administer the known drugs to stop the insanity of pet overpopulation...but he chooses not to do so.
Instead Gary Michelson the money hoarder decides to offer a "Prize" for a one dose sterilant. The catch is "He" must be able to patent then sell it for profits. Gary dangles a prize so people can make even more money for him. Gary is a money hoarder. While he may not buy expensive cars, yachts, jewelry, he does like having, controlling a lot of money. Perhaps because he grew up poor money has always been his main goal. In fact I bet he got into spine surgery because it's lucrative. I now don't believe he got into spine surgery to help his granny's old back. His high school year book in 1965 said he wanted to be a lawyer, not a doctor. Plus, he was a psychology major in undergrad, not pre-med.
Gary Michelson is hoping to patent and sell his own drug for profits. I believe he is trying to knock off human sterilants as animal sterilants. He is trying to reinvent the wheel. That is why when I spoke to Abbott Laboratory who makes Lupron they said they will change their label, patent to say it can also be used as an animal sterilant. This way Gary Michelson can't be a patent troll with their patent. If Gary were to have made a drug one molecule, ingredient, element off and stated it was to sterilize animals, he could get the patent. It has to be a new drug with a different purpose. This way if a company such as Lupron were to start selling their human sterilant as an animal sterilant Gary could sue them or ask for a licensing fee.
