That is an interesting observation.  Also interesting is the fact that 
the lug is copper.  Unless the plate is also copper this whole setup is 
doomed to failure from galvanic action.

Just because something has been patented does not mean it is worth 
anything.  I bet you could patent spit but that would not make it any 
more desirable.
