The Wright brothers were in a similar position for about 5 years after they were the first to fly. Were they scam artists? They sure as hell were accused of being such. Their only stipulation for demonstrating flight was that, once they did so, the observer would be buying airplanes from them. Sounds pretty reasonable today, doesn't it?
But they had no takers until 1908. Then they did their 2 famous demos to people willing to pay and all of a sudden their patents were flying through the patent office, the press was favorable, they weren't scam artists any more, the whole drill. Let's say for purposes of argument that Rossi decides to give a demo that answers his critics. He invites you, Jed, the Amazing Randi, and one other known critic to test his black box with your own tools. You just can't open the box. Would you do it? Then let's say the demo really catches on, Rossi gets as famous as the Wrights.... would these patent applications be viewed in the same light as how you are presenting them right now? Nope. They would sail through the patent office with flying colors. On 8/10/17, JonesBeene <jone...@pacbell.net> wrote: > That long list is a little deceiving.
