Everything is obvious in hindsight. All invention procedes from the known to the unknown. An invention is nearly always the combination of two or more known things to produce something which was unknown and which has unexpected benefits.

What else could it be? The combination of two or more unknown things to produce a known thing?

Most of the abuses of the patent system would disapear if only individuals could own patents.
