I am married to a Patent Attorney ;) It is definitely true that for a patent to be granted the subject has to be innovative, not obvious and not already in the public domain.



That is true....

But it doesn't! The angle range is huge - 65-100° for example for Top Middle. In practical terms, for a typical room with typical ceiling height, that range can cover 3 to 4 feet of ceiling.
