It sounds like there could be a legal house of cards, then, if deception is shown during a patent suit. I remember a recent patent application by Rossi whose description seemed to incorporate large portions of the Lugano report as evidence. I was wondering whether the isotope analysis was included in that application; if it was omitted, I suppose the patent might not be endangered.
I do not assume anything at this point about what Industrial Heat knew or didn't know in connection with Rossi's preparation for the Lugano test. Intentionally fiddling around with the nickel isotopes without having an operational reason to do so strikes me as active sabotage of the ash assay, rather than passive standing back and allowing the Lugano team to concluding what they will. So I have a hard time concluding anything but subterfuge in connection with this specific detail of the Lugano test if Bob's scenario is what occurred. It is possible that there is a similar, but more benign, scenario that actually transpired. I'm personally holding out for an active role for the nickel, though. :) Eric On Sat, Oct 3, 2015 at 10:26 AM, Jones Beene <jone...@pacbell.net> wrote: > Don’t forget that the Lugano report, containing the fallacious isotope > data - was apparently submitted directly to the patent office as > documentation for obtaining the IP.
