PATENTS - Military and nuclear - And possibilities for secrecy and disinformation. Einstein link?
Some notes on the complications of patents---
 Patents give rights for a limited time for ways of doing something - many of them are rather basic and trivial. Thus for example a drink bottle might have some sort of indent or tab, the sole function of which is to make sure bottles line up properly on a conveyor belt. (This is an actual example). Hence there are vast numbers of patents on a vast range of industrial operations. (Inevitably there are disputed areas - is an algorithm for a computer operation patentable? Is a blue squash ball patentable?)
 Governments and military get some sort of priority - patents which could be dangerous or allow security infringements etc may be listed by number, but without any details.
 The system appears to be national—patents have to be taken out in large numbers of countries. This of course is liable to be expensive.
 Some inventors may choose not to patent. I knew a chap who dealt in glass, who wanted to design a new way to etch glass with hydrofluoric acid. I don't know if he discovered a method; but he said he would not patent it if he did, because all patents give detailed instructions on what to do. Legal action against anyone infringing the patent is the patentee's responsibility; this may be too expensive to be practicable.
 Patents may be deliberately incomplete. Someone able to invent some new device or method may be an employee, and may deliberately allow loopholes in the patent so it can be circumvented in future with e.g. another employer. (From a comment by Ivor Catt). There must be problems if a discovery is empirical, i.e. it works, but nobody is sure why - for example early ROMs seem to have been invented by accidentally shoving high voltages in a device. Another Catt example).
 I remember talking to an American in a bar in Dublin, who told me he held a patent for an H-Bomb device. I believe it was some sort of method to hold two pieces of U235 together long enough for their supposed explosion to reliably take place. This suggests that one use for patents is disinformation.
 Despite the above provisos, presumably study of patents can give a cutting-edge view of the progress and directions of technologies.
 OK.. Possible Einstein link. Hadn't occurred to me before, but Einstein as a patent agent [or patent clerk, charged with filing and/or dicussing details with agents or patenters - Rerev] would be in a good position to nudge patent applications towards Jews. In other words, legal priority over inventions could be assigned to Jews as against 'Goyim'. I have no evidence that this happened (or that it didn't). However, it seems worth bearing in mind as a possibility.
