I’ll do a video about bricks if nobody asks for one for 24 hours. Unless you’re Bill Gates-we’re on retainer if he ever needs a bricks video.

Before you get yourself in a tizzy, just know that to get a patent, you don't really need to prove that your invention works. So if your goal is fear mongering; FAIL.

Corporations run the U.S. Government with an iron fist. All of America's resources are owned by corporations. Corporations dictate "science" narratives and own these, " secret patents"

If a patent is secret, is it really a patent? Is someone ever sued for using secret patent? If so, on what legal grounds since no one can know if they breached secret patent since it is... secret? People reinvent the wheel several times a year, you know.

Had I invented something that would potentially be classified, I'd first get a patent in a country without a law like the invention secrecy act before I try to patent it in the US. That way by the time the USPTO evaluates my invention, it will already be public knowledge and classifying it in the US would do little to suppress it, since the US cannot force another countries' patent office to keep something secret, or can they?

There's an easy work-around for inventors: Simply publish the details of your invention before applying for the patent. Inventors are allowed to publicly discuss an idea for a year prior to getting the patent, and in doing so there would be no point to try and classify the patent after the fact.

If someone comes up with an invention that he thinks might get labeled secret, he would probably be better off not filing for a patent in the first place, and relying on "trade secret" protection instead.

Patents don’t tell you exactly how to make a thing. They describe in excruciating detail what a thing is, but not how to make said thing. Important distinction.

Also, secrecy practically by definition means low oversight and therefore potential for abuse, and being able to simply ban public distribution of an invention has massive value to businesses. Considering that an invention which has been disruptive to one of the biggest and worst industries in the world (solar panels) already almost got onto that list, and I don't trust the government not to misuse that power sufficiently to cause more harm than the good it allegedly does.

So generally speaking, one of the main reasons to patent an idea is so you can show the idea to potential investors and have a reasonable expectation that you can protect yourself from the theft of your intellectual property. That's the main reason for my patents, anyway. I'd be pretty angry if I went through the trouble and expense to get a patent on something only to be told by the government that I've got the patent but I can't show my idea to anyone. I understand that the intent is to protect weapons secrets so other governments can't benefit from the research done on things like the Manhattan Project (there were patents involved), but i don't think it's okay to trust the government to tell me that my solar panels can't be produced because I can't show potential investors how they work.
