The e-cat motor device, invented and designed by Italian scientist and entrepreneur Andrea Rossi, known as Energy Catalyzer, has drawn quite some attention in recent months. Since its first display and presentation in 2009 to its first series of tests in the first half of 2011 to today, when it is in the state of patent pending and preparation for the mass demonstration in the 1 MW plant, it has been gaining momentum, slowly but steadily.
It seems like now E-Cat is at the peak of its popularity with many a letter are written, many a forum post are left on Rossi’s blog (Journal of Nuclear Physics), many a skepticism is expressed, many an organization are courting the inventor and his apparatus (including NASA), and many a media outlets are covering the revolutionary fusor energy invention.
One of such media outlets that touched on the subject of Energy Catalyzer or rather the whole cold fusion phenomenon was Ca$h Flow show, when it interviewed David French, who has been a patent attorney for 35 years. They talked about patent pending, the process that E-Cat finds itself in currently.
They also spoke about the costs for a patent, which ranges from $5,000 to 10K and even 20K, depending on the case. The costs may increase depending on the invention itself, and how much time a patent attorney spends on it. The more he does in preparation of a good application, the more his bills will be. Another issue has to do with the fact that this cost applied to one country at a time. Thus, if the e-cat motor will need to be patented in more just one country, it would multiple tremendously.
Andrea Rossi so far has acquired a patent for his fusor device in Italy and applied for an American patent and an International one. But he remains tranquil about the pending process, as he has entrusted this part of business to his American customer, while he is concentrated on the technological aspect of the device and the October test to come.
