from

With the invention of our new battery, Volts Vagon will apply for a
patent and with a “patent pending” our new battery invention will
be legally the exclusive rights and property of Volts Vagon.


While other companies could technically “steal” the idea of our
battery, it will be rendered useless to other companies as we still
have legal rights through the applied patent which is being
processed


Respectable companies will not risk the reputation damage of
stealing ideas directly


Competitors are more likely to modify our battery once it is
released than to break into our facility


Identification badges with unique radio frequency chips


8
-
digit password


Highly unlikely competitors will physically break into our facility
and risk criminal charges


There was no theft of our original battery technology


Competitors still contract their batteries out, so if they would have broken
into our facility it would have been when we first created our battery, and
there was no break
