This was written about Benjamin Franklin and his inventions. "In which he provides a Selfless model for Sharing and Cooperation; Inspires us with his Generosity; and Lends Moral Authority to the Principles of Free Culture…"
Below is from Benjamin Franklin's autobiography which is linked here. Benjamin Franklin did not copyright his autobiography. Notice where this FREE autobiography is housed "Welcome to Project Gutenberg. You'll find here 44,709 ebooks completely free of charge."

You can also find them in the library for free.
One last comment. Gary Michelson will sue the shit out of someone for even thinking about an object to put in a spine. He will spend $50,000,000 to sue you even if the product you are thinking about has nothing to do with his patents. Now that Gary Michelson started 20 Million Minds he wants to steal the copyright from writers. That's like people stealing his patents. If he steals a copyright and takes, steals money from text book authors, publishers, that's okay. If someone were to infringe on one of his patents, he'll sue them until they are penniless. Patent, trademark, copyright...all the same thing. Gary Michelson is so blind he can't even tell what he's doing.
"In order of time, I should have mentioned before, that having, in 1742, invented an open stove for the better warming of rooms, and at the same time saving fuel, as the fresh air admitted was warmed in entering, I made a present of the model to Mr. Robert Grace, one of my early friends, who, having an iron-furnace, found the casting of the plates for these stoves a profitable thing, as they were growing in demand. To promote that demand, I wrote and published a pamphlet, entitled “An Account of the new-invented Pennsylvania Fireplaces; wherein their Construction and Manner of Operation is particularly explained; their Advantages above every other Method of warming Rooms demonstrated; and all Objections that have been raised against the Use of them answered and obviated,” etc. This pamphlet had a good effect. Gov’r. Thomas was so pleas’d with the construction of this stove, as described in it, that he offered to give me a patent for the sole vending of them for a term of years; but I declin’d it from a principle which has ever weighed with me on such occasions, viz., That, as we enjoy great advantages from the inventions of others, we should be glad of an opportunity to serve others by any invention of ours; and this we should do freely and generously.
An ironmonger in London however, assuming a good deal of my pamphlet, and working it up into his own, and making some small changes in the machine, which rather hurt its operation, got a patent for it there, and made, as I was told, a little fortune by it. And this is not the only instance of patents taken out for my inventions by others, tho’ not always with the same success, which I never contested, as having no desire of profiting by patents myself, and hating disputes. The use of these fireplaces in very many houses, both of this and the neighbouring colonies, has been, and is, a great saving of wood to the inhabitants."
– Benjamin Franklin, Autobiography
Benjamin Franklin was a brilliant person who invented many useful things which have helped people. He hated the idea of patents. He freely gave these inventions to the people. That is a good person. Gary Michelson is the exact opposite. He STOLE an idea (threaded spinal cage) from two people and just ran to the patent office first to patent it. He beat them by a few months. He'd never even made the product before. That is his main patent. He really shouldn't even be in the inventor hall of fame. He should be in the invention thief hall of fame. Then when others tried to make something similar to what he stole he sued the shit out of them. That is a very, very bad person.
My manuals, articles, photos, videos are all online for anyone to use for free. I want to help people and animals. The only thing I don't allow is for people to make money off my photos and videos because I have ads on them. That would take money from my non-profit. The proceeds from my ads go to my non-profit which desperately needs funds.
Again, there is a huge difference between Benjamin Franklin and Gary Michelson. Benjamin Franklin cared about helping people. Gary Michelson hates people. Gary Michelson also hates animals. He could be sterilizing animals right now with current drugs and saving lives but he wants to steal someone's drug so he can patent it and make money instead. Animals are dying because of Gary and he doesn't care.
