Two excellent biographical sketches of the ultimate submariner -- Jerome Lemelson

I particularly liked this quote:

"Like Thomas Edison, he regarded a patent as a right to sue" This article is more, however, the story of the battle between Lemelson's attorney, Gerald Hosier, and his nemesis, Robert Shillman, head of Cognex Corp. [Part 1] [Part 2]

A much more critical view -- with fewer colorful quotes and fantasies of physical violence comes from the Scotsman site.
