Is lack of money relevant? - ie did he have to sell his designs because he couldn't afford the patent?

Is selling the idea in any way relevant? Did he sell his idea/design to someone who utilized the knowledge to make something better?

Did his company have the right to his invention because he worked for them when he invented it?

Does it relate to alternating versus direct current? yeah good enough for a

************* SPOILER **************

The term is call War or Battle of the Currents. With Edison coming in first with and implementing direct current, vs Tesla and Westinghouse advocated for alternating current later.
