Thus wrote Alfred Tomatis in 1977, in the first edition of his autobiography "L'oreille et la vie", on page 284:
"My work has been much plagiarized, much plundered, but I harbor no bitterness for it. I would even say that if the counterfeit of the devices I developed could be used to cure more patients, I will applaud the first. What annoys me, what pains me, is that most of the forgers do not just use the ideas of others; they still want to testify to the face of the world of their own genius - like a painter who, wishing to plagiarize the Mona Lisa, would add a big hat and umbrella to it because in his opinion "that's good". As a rule, these scroundrels worked in vain: recording very few therapeutic successes, they did not make a fortune as they hoped. This manifestation of a kind of immanent justice can be explained, once more, by the lack of modesty of the plagiarists, who could not simply reproduce the model purely and simply. Assured to be much smarter than the inventor himself, they wanted to beat him on his own ground. Each time, it is this concern of "improvement", based on a lack of knowledge of the psychophysiological realities, which caused their defeat"
