Patenting Cold Fusion Inventions before the US Patent and Trademark Office
Metadata[+] Show full item record
The United States Patent Office - US PTO has developed a reputation for refusing applications directed to "Cold Fusion" technology. Past practices of the US PTO, which will be reviewed based on a published employee grievance hearing, have shown that some staff members have been hostile to granting patents in this field. However personal exchanges held with the US PTO in the fall of 2012 indicated that the US PTO will issue properly drafted patents which are directed to new technology in the field of Cold Fusion/generation-of-unexplained-excess-energy if accompanied by a proper disclosure and a demonstration that the asserted procedures will work as represented.
