The inventor posted this on his FB page 31Jan2013:
"I have received an initial response from the United States Patent and Trademark Office today on my core patent application. It is really good news! It looks like 12 of 20 claims will be granted including the most critical ones for my technology. The rejected claims were my patent attorney doing his job and trying to extend the claims beyond what I said I needed. So we were trimmed back to the claims I really was after in the first place. Fantastic!
I am in the process of setting up a foundation which will hold the patent rights. This purpose of this foundation is to use the proceeds of these patents to help the poorest people in our world improve their lives."
