There are now 4,915 inventions on file at the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office that are officially secret. 106 new secret patents were added this year and the secrecy was lifted on 76 others. Most of the new patents are sponsored by defense agencies but about a third this fiscal year were “John Doe” filings. (10/17/05)
