Press Release for Wesleyan SAT piece
The fingerprints of the U.S. Government and Battelle Memorial Institute are found at the scene of the crime for a second time!
Today, the Institute for Complexity Management and the John Galt Program for Investigate Studies issued a companion article to their earlier report on violations of antitrust law by the FDA, Battelle Memorial Institute and the Grocery Manufacturer’s Association.
The new report entitled, How the DOD, Battelle Memorial Institute and other DOD ‘Preferred’ contractors are Violating Antitrust Laws, tells another story about a small company that had its intellectual property stolen by the U.S. Government in collusion with their contractors.
“As we say in our report, this is another open and shut case of predatory and anticompetitive conduct by the U.S. Government and their crony contractors,” the principal investigator who wrote the report told us. The investigation conducted by Dr. Hnatio has been in progress for over a year.
Wesleyan Company was a small entrepreneurial start up business that owned a series of patents for on the move drinking systems that are used by sports enthusiasts and the military. “The military uses the Wesleyan drinking system technology to protect U.S. Soldiers from the possibility of nuclear, chemical, and biological attacks on the battlefield,” said Hnatio.
“It’s basically a story of the theft of a small businessman’s intellectual property by the U.S. Army, and its duplication by a group of their preferred contractors, to make money at the expense of an entrepreneur,” he added.
This is the second report demonstrating the role of Battelle Memorial Institute, acting as an agent of their U.S. Government clients, to misappropriate technology and facilitate its duplication in order to avoid paying the rightful owners royalties on their patented inventions. “What we are seeing here is a long-standing pattern of unlawful conduct in violation of the takings clause of the U.S. Constitution,” Dr. Hnatio observed. Amendment V of the U.S. Constitution prohibits the U.S. Government from simply taking the property of U.S. citizens without fair remuneration.
We have also been told by the Institute for Complexity Management that they have issued a constructive notice pursuant the Uniform Commercial Code to Secretary of Defense Ashton B. Carter as the result of their investigation. Secretary Carter has been given 30 days to rebut the facts as presented to him or they automatically become true statements of fact under the law.
Prior constructive notices of anticompetitive conduct have already been issued to the Commissioner of the Food and Drug Administration, the President of Battelle Memorial Institute and the President of the Grocery Manufacturer’s Association. In all cases, they conceded their guilt by choosing not to rebut the facts demonstrating violations of the Sherman Antitrust Act, the Clayton Act and a host of other misconduct.
