Ligher Than Air Lift Supported Towers

Back in March I had the Idea that some form of space launch platform could be built using lighter than air lift tech. In my approach the idea was to have a series of doughnut shaped lift rings through which the the actual tower would rise up through, and through which support would be provided.

Turns out that I'm not the only one who thinks the idea has merit. Check out this link to the patent just applied for by a Cannadian firm:
