When I think of a film director who has given audience some of the best films, one person that strikes my mind is James Francis Cameron.

Some of his works include Titanic, Aliens, Rambo: First Blood Part II and so on. After Titanic, he began working on a project that took almost 10 years to make.

This post was first published on July 10, 2012. Given the global nature of businesses today, it is not uncommon for a patent applicant to file patent applications in multiple countries for the same invention.
