Artykuł stanowi przypomnienie innowatorów i wynalazców, którzy przegrali walkę z wielkimi korporacjami. Autor skupia się na dwóch takich przypadkach: Edwinie Howardzie Armstrongu – wynalazcy superheterodyny i odkrywcy możliwości nadawania programów radiowych na falach FM, oraz Prestonie Thomasie Tuckerze – konstruktorze nowatorskiego samochodu, o którym Francis Ford Coppola zrobił film Tucker – konstruktor marzeń (1988). Podobny los spotkał też Barthélemy’ego Thimonniera – wynalazcę maszyny do szycia, a nawet kilku pionierów kina, którzy nie zdążyli w porę opatentować swoich wynalazków, m.in. Louis Aimé Augustina Le Prince’a.

The article is a recollection of e few innovators and inventors who have lost their wars with powerful corporations. The author focuses on two cases like this: one of Edwin Howard Armstrong, the inventor of superheterodyne and discoverer of a possibility of broadcasting radio programs on FM radio waves, the other of Preston Thomas Tucker, the constructor of innovative car about whom Francis Ford Coppola made a film Tucker: The Man and His Dream (1988). Many other visionaries of the past suffer a similar fate. One of them was Barthélemy Thimonnier, the inventor of the sewing machine, not to mention a few pioneers of cinema who did not secure their patents on time, e.g. Louis Aimé Augustin Le Prince.
