I don't know why any of that matters. Rossi was contracted to teach IH how to produce working and sellable ecats. He never did. Contract broken. end of argument.
Every once in a while MY gets it right. Here he reduces everything down to it's essentials. A rarity for him. Contractually...and that is what this is mostly about, I have little doubt IH wins handily, as they should.
That leaves the issue of whether, or not, the Ecat works at all. Totally separate matter to be discussed IMO. That is still open for debate. I think though, for starters, we can all admit that if it does work, it is not at the COP, or reliability Rossi has claimed.
