Yeah it is -- about -- personal as.
All the if explain that to both of us Phil quit because right now it's the first to invent that's the system and it changed to first to file.
Right so throughout American history it's been a few got the idea first use -- gonna be the -- that idea.
The government's gonna help you make sure that your conception of your idea has priority rights.

You create those incentives to get those ideas out you get their shares and hopefully great things happen -- -- -- thank you --
