> Why are you making such a secret about your patent?
Probably because there is a time period in patents in which they can be easily
rejected/removed/dispatented called "opposition period". I time period is 9
months, and during that time it is very easi to say to the patent office "that
isn't patentable feature, or that feature has been published earlier if it is
really published before date in patent application" etc.
For futher reading:
Here is about the opposition period:
Grounds for opposition
178 Opposition may only be filed on the grounds that:
· the patent's subject-matter is not patentable within the terms of Articles
· the patent does not disclose the invention clearly and completely enough for
it to be carried out by a skilled person
· the patent's subject-matter extends beyond the content of the application as
