Invention Secrecy Still Going Strong
Posted on Sunday, October 24, 2010 @ 18:42:54 GMT by vlad

Testimonials Via KeelyNet.com: There were 5,135 inventions that were under secrecy orders at the end of Fiscal Year 2010, the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office told Secrecy News last week. It’s a 1% rise over the year before, and the highest total in more than a decade. Under the Invention Secrecy Act of 1951, patent applications on new inventions can be subject to secrecy orders restricting their publication if government agencies believe that disclosure would be “detrimental to the national security.” The current list of technology areas that is used to screen patent applications for possible restriction under the Invention Secrecy Act is not publicly available and has been denied under the Freedom of Information Act. (An appeal is pending.)

But a previous list dated 1971 and obtained by researcher Michael Ravnitzky is available here - (pdf). Most of the listed technology areas are closely related to military applications. But some of them range more widely. Thus, the 1971 list indicates that patents for solar photovoltaic generators were subject to review and possible restriction if the photovoltaics were more than 20% efficient. Energy conversion systems were likewise subject to review and possible restriction if they offered conversion efficiencies “in excess of 70-80%.” One may fairly ask if disclosure of such technologies could really have been “detrimental to the national security,” or whether the opposite would be closer to the truth. One may further ask what comparable advances in technology may be subject to restriction and non-disclosure today. But no answers are forthcoming, and the invention secrecy system persists with no discernible external review. - Full Article Source

Issues such as the above need to be considered in a broader context.  Crises in government are continuing to spread.  A general crisis of legitimacy seems likely in the next few years.  The anti technological motif is only one strand in a rising tide of dysfunction.  It seems likely that the technological suppression issue will have to be addressed from within a more general reform of government and society induced by governmental collapse.

Just today I saw an article suggesting one way colonization of Mars.  The author argues that this would require a return to the attitudes of the great days of Western exploration in which people left to settle on other continents without expectation of ever returning.  A very different attitude from today's safety first, politically correct viewpoint.

I concur.  A true solution to technological secrecy requires the rebirth of a more adventurous attitude.  A willingness to accept both the risks and the gains.  Many of the problems discussed on zpenergy require solutions that beg for the death of this age and the rise of a more adventurous vision.

Hopefully this age will soon die of its own funk.  Then we shall see what can be done.  However, no one should neglect the point that success will depend on the temper of the time to come.

It is outrageous that high efficient solar photovoltaic patents can be subject to a secrecy order. This is nothing to do with our "savety", on the contrary, these secrecy orders endanger our world.

What is the commercial value of patents anyway? It is only a mean to maintain monopolies, in particular in combination with secrecy orders.

People should understand that the "invention secrecy act" is illegal, and in direct contradiction with the Bill of Rights of all Americans.

Via KeelyNet.com [www.keelynet.com]: Over the weekend I wrote an article titled Turning Your Idea into an Invention [ipwatchdog.com].  In the article I talked about the fact that you do not need to have a prototype, but rather you need to be able to describe your invention with enough detail so that others will be able to understand what you have invented.  This is true except in the scenario of a perpetual motion machine, which I acknowledged in the article.  I didn’t want to go off on what would have been a lengthy tangent, but I knew as I was typing that paragraph I would circle back and fill in the blanks regarding the law as it pertains to perpetual motion machines....
