Often the original inventor is forgotten and the most successful businessman is the winner.
For example Eddison is often credited with inventing the electric lightbulb when it was Joseph Swan about 20yrs earlier!!!
Also Singer didn't invent the sewing machine and Hoover didn't invent the vacuum cleaner - nobody remembers the poor buggers who did!!!
