From Lutec update page: "It is with pleasure we announce grant notification regarding our Mexican patent application. The official certificate will be forwarded to us shortly and we will post a copy of it to the patents page on this site in due course. The European patent is still pending"
It covers over twenty countries and the application must be translated into all of those languages and examined individually by each of those countries patent office examiners. That's why it takes so long. The European patent is a key component in our business plan and little of obvious notice to the general public will occur until it is finalized. Read the last sentence again.
