Examines the role of patent agents as mediators, with examples including Blétry, Dony, and Armengaud.
Regarding Armgengaud's relationship with Clément Ader, Galvez-Behar notes that Ader was a technically-educated engineer, well capable of producing descriptions for patents himself, and even he gave his agent significant editing power. Other inventors were even more reliant on patent agents to describe their work in the appropriate fashion and to present its uniqueness.
