The patent process of a FREE energy device involves different conditions in comparison to patenting other inventions. The inventor must be aware of these specifically - As these conditions can prevent the invention from reaching the public.
The information on this page describes the elements which concern the patenting of FREE energy technology. Panacea is also providing this information to help inventors learn about the advantages of patenting a FREE energy device verses releasing it through a general purpose license, creative commons and open source.The aim here is to assist the inventor to get their technology known and out to the public.
The inventor must understand ALL the realities of the situation where FREE energy patents are concerned. First one must be aware of the reports from past FREE energy inventors especially a particular patent office employee describing an ever growing hold over FREE energy technology via the corporate patenting process.Then you must understand that there are ways around this.

The U.S. Patent Office has a nine-member committee that screens patents for national security implications. A hidden purpose of this committee is to also screen energy-related patents which could threaten the power and fossil fuel companies, -End Quote....
