AmpEnergo claims the Western Hemisphere

by Ivy Matt, Cold Fusion Now

 For now the company will focus on developing a 1 MW device, to be available in late 2011 or early 2012. Unlike Defkalion it currently has no plans to develop a home heating unit.

There have been some comparisons of "cold fusion" with powered flight, which is popularly known from the story of the Wright Brothers.

Nearly five years after their first powered flight, they were still not believed.
 1903
Following repairs, the Wrights finally took to the air on December 17, 1903, making two flights each from level ground into a freezing headwind gusting to 27 miles per hour (43 km/h). The first flight, by Orville, of 120 feet (37 m) in 12 seconds, at a speed of only 6.8 miles per hour (10.9 km/h) over the ground, was recorded in a famous photograph.

1908 
Facing a lot of skepticism in the French aeronautical community and outright scorn by some newspapers that called him a "bluffeur," Wilbur began official public demonstrations on August 8, 1908 at the Hunaudi√®res horse racing track near the town of Le Mans, France. His first flight lasted only one minute 45 seconds, but his ability to effortlessly make banking turns and fly a circle amazed and stunned onlookers, including several pioneer French aviators, among them Louis Bleriot. 

Although the Wright Brothers achieved fame, it does not appear that they achieve much fortune from their invention.  It is something of a cautionary tale to read their story.  With the history of "cold fusion", it already shows some of the pitfalls an inventor can have in attempting to earn the profits from his intellect.  Such as fate may also befall Rossi.
