An inventor is a person who creates or discovers a new method, form, device or other useful means. The word "inventor" comes form the latin verb "invenire", "invent-", to find. [ [**] ] [ [] ] The system of patents was established to encourage inventors by granting limited-term, limited monopoly on inventions determined to be sufficiently novel, non-obvious, and useful. See Inventor (patent).
