On 17th February The Telegraph published an interesting article about the inventor Trevor Baylis and the intricacies of patent law.
MoDiP has a Trevor Baylis wind up radio in the collection and it is always a popular piece with our visitors.
It does seem such a shame that such a brilliant man can lose so much control of his inventions and patents leaving him in a position where he has to make the decision whether to remortgage or sell the house that he built in order to be able to afford to live.
