Artistic invention[edit]

This article is completely disproportionate. The "Artistic invention" section fills about 80% of the page. In particular the timelines are extremely partial and incomplete, and shouldn't be on this page at all. I suggest removing them entirely.Drilou (talk) 21:23, 20 March 2012 (UTC)

Dissent and editing[edit]

I see that there is a ton of dissent on this page about small tiny changes. However, the article has been tagged for copy editing for over a year. It has also been tagged for a lack of continuity and because it is confusing. It seems to me that there are two competing themes on the page -- invention as a technical term used in technical/engineering applications and invention used in the more creative broad sense. These things can be discussed on the same page, but I think some kind of acknowledgement of this left brain/right brain split might help everyone happy.

so I am going to try and do a major copy-edit and re-organize the article to bring about these changes. I understand that there may be some discussion or disagreement about this, but I am hopeful everyone will like what I have done to make the article tighter and more readable. Comments are welcome!

White inventors[edit]

What would be a good list of White inventors or Ethnic European inventors to put in here or link to another article about it? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 77.53.219.2 (talk) 16:50, 18 September 2013 (UTC)

Invention From A Lawyer View[edit]

This article is a lot of BS written from the POV of patent lawyers. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 173.228.46.47 (talk) 22:30, 1 March 2015 (UTC)
