Abstract: A ring is said to be right (left) invariant if each of its right (left) ideals is twosided. In this paper we resolve the conjecture: Every right invariant integral domain which satisfies the left Ore (multiple) condition is left invariant. A proof is given for the class of LCM domains satisfying a finiteness condition. An example is given to show that the LCM hypothesis cannot be dropped. A second example shows that the conjecture fails even in a Bezout domain which does not have the finiteness condition. The problem of right versus left boundedness is also considered.
