An inventor is a person who creates or discovers a new method, form, device or other useful means that becomes known as an "invention. The word inventor comes from the "Latin verb invenire, invent-, to find.[1][2] The system of "patents was established to encourage inventors by granting limited-term, limited "monopoly on inventions determined to be sufficiently "novel, "non-obvious, and "useful. Although inventing is closely associated with science and engineering, inventors are not necessarily engineers nor scientists.[3]
