Kevin Costner, inventor and entreprenuer, to clean oil spill
It seems no one can fix the oil spill. But Kevin Costner has developed a technology for cleaninging oil spills. He is presently in negotiations to license the technology to BP.
You never know who is an inventor and entreprenuer.
The text of the patent is here. It appears Costner didn’t make enough technical contributions to be listed as an inventor. But his company is listed as the original assignee, so he must’ve financed the research.
