    Invention Secrecy Activity in 2016
    Legal From the FAS site - Project on Government Secrecy

    Invention Secrecy Activity
    (as reported by the Patent & Trademark Office)

    The Invention Secrecy Act of 1951 requires the government to impose "secrecy orders" on certain patent applications that contain sensitive information, thereby restricting disclosure of the invention and withholding the grant of a patent. Remarkably, this requirement can be imposed even when the application is generated and entirely owned by a private individual or company without government sponsorship or support.

    There are several types of secrecy orders which range in severity from simple prohibitions on export (but allowing other disclosure for legitimate business purposes) up to classification, requiring secure storage of the application and prohibition of all disclosure.

    At the end of fiscal year 2016, there were 5,680 secrecy orders in effect.

    Steorn Liquidates
    Legal by Michael Ferrier (Dispatches from the Future): Ten years after introducing itself to the world with an ad in the economist that claimed they’d discovered a way to defy the laws of physics and provide unlimited free energy, Steorn has announced that they’ve laid off their staff, and are liquidating their assets and winding up the company.

    This was reported in today’s issue of Ireland’s Sunday Business Post. The online article is behind a paywall but the print version can be viewed here: [Sunday Business Post article on Steorn liquidation]

    Former CEO Shaun McCarthy said of Steorn’s investors, “We took their money. We raised their expectations and it fell flat on its fucking face. They’ve a right to be angry about that.”

    How the U.S. Patent Office Got So Screwed Up
    Legal Eye opening article from Popular Mechanics: Once a haven for innovation, over the last two decades the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office has been rocked by the velocity of technological change and roiled by "patent trolls." Could it be that the biggest impediment that innovators now face is the very system that was created to protect them?

    "...But according to Epstein and other Silicon Valley insiders, the real goal of these lobbying efforts wasn't to kill trolls or even to curtail patent litigation. Though big tech corporations still spend many billions a year on R&D, the outlay has shifted from the R to the D—that is, the developmental work of bringing to market that which has already been invented. This means that big companies increasingly obtain their innovations not from their own efforts, but by acquiring them from startups, small inventors, and universities.

    The $5.3 Trillion Energy Subsidy Problem
    Legal From NextBigFuture: US$5.3 trillion; 6½ percent of global GDP—that is the IMFs latest reckoning of the cost of energy subsidies in 2015. The figure likely exceeds government health spending across the world, estimated by the World Health Organization at 6 percent of global GDP, but for the different year of 2013. They correspond to one of the largest negative externality ever estimated. They have global relevance. And that’s not all: earlier work by the IMF also shows that these subsidies have adverse effects on economic efficiency, growth, and inequality.

    What are energy subsidies ?

    U.S. Department of Energy Invites Submission of LENR Proposals
    Legal Steven Krivit (newenergytimes.net) writes: Jan. 3, 2014 – By Steven B. Krivit

    New Energy Times has just learned that, on Sept. 27, 2013, the Department of Energy’s Advanced Research Projects Agency-Energy (ARPA-E) quietly announced a funding opportunity for low-energy nuclear reaction (LENR) research, among other areas.

    This first-ever direct invitation from the Department of Energy for submission of proposals to fund this research marks a significant point in the field’s history. This is one of three recent shifts in the scientific establishment’s attitude toward this new field of science.

    Brazil Tech Most Advanced in the World
    Legal Anonymous writes: Avatar Director James Cameron does battle with technology giant, Brazil. The following is a copy of a letter sent to Atossa Soltani, Founder and Executive Director of Amazon Watch on April 17, 2010.

    To the attention of Atossa Soltani:

    After reading several AP articles in local papers in California, I became aware of the issues over the Belo Monte project. I have visited many of the countries in South America and to the Amazon in Ecuador and Peru (time in Brazil/Iguazu only), but not to the area of the proposed dam.

    I understand that a group of your people was recently in Brazil with Avatar director, James Cameron  ; I should think he would be very interested in knowing about this technology.

    Two arrested six years after Mallove murder
    Legal Two suspects were arrested Thursday and more arrests are expected in the long drawn out case of the murder of cold fusion physicist and Free Energy science pillar, Dr. Eugene Mallove, formerly with MIT, most famous for his advocacy of Low Energy Nuclear Reactions. - Compiled by Sterling D. Allan /Pure Energy Systems News

    Norwich, Connecticut, USA – Six years after the brutal murder of the much-revered  cold fusion scientist,  Eugene Mallove, two arrests were made Thursday, and more arrests are expected.  This time, police say these two are without a doubt responsible. (Ref.)

    Provisional Patents Donít Exist
    Legal By David M. DeMay (inventorsdigest.com)

    In the inventor community, many possess a limited understanding of the U.S. patent process.

    One of the most common misunderstandings relates to the notion of a “provisional patent.” I’ve heard people say, “I have a provisional patent” or “I am protected because I have filed for a provisional patent.” Because of their misunderstanding of the process, many have unintentionally surrendered any patent rights they may have secured for their invention.

    Putting Ideas And Inventions Into The Public Domain
    Legal from the an-idea-who's-time-has-come dept

    A few months back, we wondered why it was so difficult to opt out of copyright. Soon after that, Creative Commons added its CC0 license, which gets you a long way towards putting your content in the public domain (there are a few issues related to it, but it's better than nothing). With patents, the issue isn't quite the same. With copyright, you're automatically given a copyright on creative works. Obviously, that's not the case with patents. However, people have wondered how they can put their invention in the public domain, such that (a) others can benefit from it and (b) it prevents others from patenting it at a later date...

    Engineer fights charges over invention scam
    Legal From http://www.keelynet.com/#whatsnew : A GOLD Coast businessman raised more than $1 million from investors for a magnet-powered engine that would never work, a court has been told. Sovereign Island-based Micheal Nugent is fighting charges brought by the Australian Securities and Investments Commission that he engaged in misleading and deceptive conduct. Mr Nugent, an engineer, says his invention will work and that fundraising was not deceptive. ASIC says Mr Nugent, a director of Cycclone Magnetic Engines Inc. based at Gaven and Lismore, failed to disclose documents as required under the Corporations Act, and acted deceptively when raising more than $1million from shareholders.

    Energy Wedgists versus Technology Breakthroughists
    Legal The future of the world's economy and climate may depend on which side wins
    by Ronald Bailey | June 3, 2008/ Reason Magazine

    The energy technology debate among those who are concerned about the dangers of man-made global warming divides into two camps—wedgists and breakthroughists...

    Breakthroughists argue that the wedgist approach is a technical and political non-starter. In 2002, a number of leading energy researchers argued in Science that current on-the-shelf technologies cannot supply low-carbon energy at an acceptable cost.

    DOE Announces Plans for Future Loan Guarantee Solicitations
    Legal WASHINGTON, DC – The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) today announced plans to issue loan guarantee solicitations in two stages this summer for up to $38.5 billion for projects that employ advanced technologies that avoid, reduce or sequester emissions of air pollutants and greenhouse gases. This will mark the second and third rounds of solicitations for DOE’s Loan Guarantee program, which encourages the development of new energy technologies and is an important step in paving the way for clean energy projects.
