Rossi ‘More Open’ to Sharing IP With Commercial Partners

A reader on the Journal of Nuclear Physics has asked Andrea Rossi some questions about the implications of the E-Cat  with regards to climate change. From Rossi’s answers it seems that there has been something of a change in his thinking on the subject which might have implications for how he has decided to implement his technology.

Here’s an excerpt from the question from Michael S.

If I remember well you have been reserved about global warming phenomenon not having made up your opinion.


1) Have you evolved on this matter ?

2) Have you and your team changed your mind in terms of rollout because of the urgency of climate change (caused by which ever reasons) ?

3) you have in the last couple of years had a strategy of rigid control of IP, the heat producing ecats beeing controlled from far via the internet. This way of working seems difficult for mobile units. Does this mean that you are more open to share your IP with commercial partners ?

Rossi’s response to these questions:

2 yes
3 yes
Thank you for your insight,
Warm Regards,

To me, Rossi’s responses indicate that he could be loosening up a little here in terms of his control of intellectual property. He has always insisted on having the tightest possible control over his IP, but maybe he realizes that if he is going to have a global impact with his invention, he is going to have to loosen that control. If the E-Cat SKL does what Rossi says it does, and performs well, he is going to have people from all over the world eager to use it in a wide variety of products. In order to cooperate with other businesses, he will have to loosen the reins of secrecy at least to some extent.
