When the film camera was invented, Thomas Edison patented the related technologies and set up Edison Studios in New Jersey. It was arguably the first major motion picture production studio in the world. He then sold camera equipment to budding producers, but sued them for using his invention so they couldn't compete with his production company. Because of his unwillingness to share, producers moved south, where he couldn't get to them with his frivolous, cruel lawsuits. One budding young director found an obscure village called Hollywood and decided to set up a studio there. When other producers heard about his genius decision, they moved down to set up their own studios. Thus, Hollywood was born. And the rest is history.
