Q: I invented and patented (US 8391552) an invaluble technology for petrochemical industry

So in 2018, the Trump Admin attacked me in a federal lab in Pittsburgh. I had to flee. Then my house was raided by a SWAT team. I fled into hiding in Amish country Ohio. Then the Trump Admin disguised my patented technology as a non-patented technology and gave it to Saudi Aramco and the petrochemical industry for free. I'm posting some of this information on my website, and asking people to contact their Congressional Rep and US Senators to ask them to have the FBI do a full investigation. Any suggestions? Thanks

A: I am sorry to hear about your tribulations, but regarding the patent: you do not own the patent. You assigned your rights to the invention to the Deparment of Energy in December 2012, after the patent application was filed but before the patent issued.

It is not your patent, and the DoE can do with it what they want, without getting a permission from you, or without even letting you know what they do with it.

Good luck!
