And don't get the conviction. He sold exactly what he promised and not even for a premium price, like the Juicero fiasco. I guess the difference between fraud and "not supportive of innovation" is $100M in VC funding.

He was never charged or convicted on the solar clothes dryer thing, that is a story he tells in his book of one of his first scams he did as a teenager.

He was convicted of investment fraud. He defrauded people.
