Rossi’s e-cat patent would be very helpful especially when the technology is already out in the marketplace. It would strengthen its marketing strategy to produce 1 millions devices at a very low price.Comment:
I've written computer software for the market under my own brand. Now, I may not be a legal expert, but my impression is that if you want protection for your intellectual property, it's better to have a patent. If it isn't protected, somebody can reproduce it and claim it as their own.
Furthermore, putting a million e-cats on the market could backfire if the product doesn't meet expectations. The odds are that there are going to be a lot of people who won't be satisfied. This will not be good PR, especially if you don't have a patent. Bad in any case, but even worse if you have no patent.
