Don Sheelen can claim to be an inventor in every sense of the word.

Under U.S. case law, an inventor is the one with "intellectual domination"[1] over the inventive process, and not merely one who assists in its reduction to practice.

"Joint inventors" exist when an invention is the result of inventive work of more than one inventor. Joint inventors exist even where one inventor contributed a majority of the work.

Status as an inventor dramatically alters parties' ability to capitalize on the invention.
