Getting idea’s stolen is common according to Rodriguez: “Inventors say they never rest easy” (549) and competitors are always trying to take another’s idea and tweak it to make it better.

An interior view of the Kinetoscope shows film wrapped around a number of wheels below an eyepiece, leading through another series of wheels that create vertical parallel rows of film, and running back towards the eyepiece. Although the film appears to pass beneath the eyepiece located at the crown of the…
