Peter, Jed and others-- It would seem the only PHOSITA that was required by the agreement was for the low temperature E-Cat. Rossi has indicated he taught the IH engineers what was necessary to operate the E-Cat, probably up to a COP of 6. That is all the patent identified.
The Hot Cat is a different invention and its operation was not covered in the IP transferred by the IP of the agreement IMHO. I think that is what is grating to IH, since Rossi already has a new invention that out-performs the E-Cat. I think he is NOT restricted in its production anywhere. It is the subject of new patents that Rossi has claimed to have prepared and maybe already have applied for around the World. The great IH engineering team has not been able to get even the plant they produced to go above a COP of around 6. It would seem they want to be trained further to improve their PHOSITA. I do not blame them for that want, but..... However, IMHO Rossi does not have any obligation to do that training. We will see as the trial unfolds, if it is not settled first. If it is settled, I would guess a new agreement would result. Both parties will be smarter and will become much more careful about the options, the wording and the issue of competition. It seems to me that Rossi has the upper hand, so to speak. I doubt he will give up his inventive superiority to IH for any money. IMHO he needs a different financial source of funding. I suspect he already has that, given his apparent desire to buy the factory in Sweden.

The difference between patent and know how is greater for processes than for products. I give you an example: - a patent gives a recipe with ingredients in some limits, sometimes large but actually optimum or even usable narrow limits exist;- climited combinations, - the patent has to give all the steps but does not give necessarily the real order and that can be critical; and there are some features difficult to define- please imagine a patent for a well working FP Cell in the hands of a good PHOSITA To not use a remote example.

Plus know-what, know-why and know-how- not? Yes. I understand this difference. A PHOSITA has the know-how. If the patent does not disclose enough information for a PHOSITA to replicate -- from the patent alone, without any inside information from Rossi -- then the patent is invalid. That would mean Rossi has no intellectual property and anyone can use his technology without paying him. Do you have some industrial experience with this- even a minimum - IT included where you are at home? I do not, but a PHOSITA does, by definition. Every industry and problem is very specific and the essentials cannot be transferred from one to another. If no one in the world has the appropriate background to do this, then there is no PHOSITA at present, so the patent will have to disclose a great deal more information than patents normally do. A patent must be enabling, or it is invalid. - Jed -- Dr. Peter Gluck Cluj, Romania http://egooutpeters.blogspot.com
