Just a note on the zoom.us video conference company.
Be sure you read the terms-of-service.
Here is a portion that says if you share your desktop with the meeting, that content automatically becomes theirs and they are allowed to sell it at will.
You understand and agree that by displaying, exchanging or uploading Content to a Zoom
website transmitting Content using the Products or
otherwise providing Content to Zoom, You automatically grant (and warrant and represent You have a right to grant)
to Zoom a world-wide, royalty-free,
sublicensable (so Zoom affiliates, contractors, resellers and partners can deliver the Products)
perpetual, irrevocable license to use, modify, publicly perform, publicly display,
reproduce and distribute the Content in the course of offering the Products.
At first glance, that looks a lot like the licenses cited in "OMG they're stealing my pictures" threads that periodically appear by people freaking out at the minimum rights that are needed to host 3rd party content.
Did you ever see history portrayed as an old man with a wise brow and pulseless heart, waging all things in the balance of reason?
Is not rather the genius of history like an eternal, imploring maiden, full of fire, with a burning heart and flaming soul, humanly warm and humanly beautiful?
Training a telescope on one’s own belly button will only reveal lint. You like that? You go right on staring at it. I prefer looking at galaxies.

It is my belief that if you discussed a patent using that technology, it immediately becomes public domain.
