AFTER years of hard work, you have finally perfected your greatest invention. You file for a patent, and then sit back to wait for the money to roll in.

Except that it doesn't. Instead, you get a letter from a security official at the patent office, informing you that your patent will not see the light of day any time soon. The technology you have designed is a threat to national security and has been designated a state secret. Tell anyone, or try to patent the idea in another country, and you face two years in jail. Welcome to the murky world of black patents.

Check out some of the stealth patents below.
