In real world exist patents. Patent is right to use invention max 20years, price is to puplic explain invention briefly. Without patent system only way to protect invention is keep it secret. Secret is heavilly against open. There is not clear black/white border.
Me365 maybe have something and don't like patents, big corporations etc. Can't tell methods/reciepe because someone can patent it after or modify slight and patent.
Which situation is more worse:
Me 365 secret/silence (during someone else can invent same and patent) or Me365 file his invention to patent?
When patent is filed it go 12-18 month office secret. But inventor can publish it next day and still have protection. Once patented it can't patent anymore anywhere.
If Me365 want share and open GPL like all what he knows and deny further patenting he needs write all what he know to patent paper (too much is better than little) file one country patent, and pay one year licence feeds then abandon it. It cost less than 1000$.
He can during 12month secret period add more papers to included such patent. They come public as patent go public. And everything what is told public can't patent.
Secret without patenting give win for big corporations because they have money to patent everything during secret time.
Me365 if you have open mind and can keep it future too go and file patent then give it public. System is posible to win only patenting. Later things depends how you use your rights.
In real life a patent is only as good as your ability to defend it and that takes a lot of money......so with tech like this you a strong monied partner or perfect timing as you go to market
