It has been more than three years since Lifewave nanotechnology patch inventor David Schmidt first asked the WorldWide Scam Network to submit any questions we had about his company and his nontransdermal energy patch product line. Questions were submitted, but answers were never received.
Those original questions and our analysis are still posted at the top of the WWSN home page:
The Lifewave Patches & Dr. David Schmidt Due Diligence Worksheet
One of those questions was about the "Lifewave Patent Application", which asks:
Marketing the Lifewave patch with only the protection of a "Patent Pending" is risky, at best. Aside from attorney's fees, the cost to file for the patent application is only $75.
With new "patches" appearing on the MLM market all the time, Lifewave should have acquired a real patent before proceeding to market the product. Even though proof of efficacy is not required, the patent itself could yet be denied for many reasons.
If this was just a new version of a multivitamin, the risks would be minimal.
But the Lifewave patch science and product claims are far beyond anything else currently available on this planet and will be worth many billions of dollars. Rushing ahead to market the patches without a formal patent is unbelievably shortsighted and does not indicate good legal advice or common sense. Why was Lifewave willing to risk so much just to enter the network marketing arena? The Lifewave company will be bigger than Microsoft. Would Bill Gates have launched his company and his product without complete Patent protection?
Everything about David Schmidt and his goofy patches reeks of scam, from his lack of a curriculum vitae, to his lack of education, his silly theories about patches that "communicate with your body like a cell phone", his psuedoscience explanations of nanotechnology and resonant frequency transfer, and even his wacky Dr. Haltiwanger.
Like most fraudulent MLM products, much is made of their patent application. This is supposed to convey a sense of legitimacy and credibility upon the product and its creators. And thousands of gullible network marketing lemmings swallow the bait whole and proceed to commit their time, money, emotions and effort into selling worthless placebo products to their friends and loved ones.
The Lifewave company is a mess - their bills are not being paid, their best people have already left the program, their product line is a joke, and they still do not have any legitimate independent studies which prove their glycerin patches do anything but empty your wallet.
And yet they always seem to be able to find another dumb jock to write testimonials.
The company limps along, thanks to forced auto-ships and monthly sales requirements to affiliates, and they've aimed their marketing efforts towards the Far East, where they hope that they will find concumers more accepting of their ancient Chinese mumbo-jumbo explanations of meridian points, acupuncture, Chi, and tuning forks.
And this is not an attack on acupuncture or New Age science and philosophies; there is much to be learned there.
But when an MLM scam artist such as David Schmidt bastardizes true science and New Age philosophies to sell worthless patches in an MLM marketing scheme such as Lifewave, he hurts and offends everybody.
So the U.S. Patent Office has had three years to review David Schmidt's lengthy and obtuse patent application. Greater minds than ours with genuine scientific expertise, education, and experience have gone over Schmidt's theories with a fine-toothed comb.
And what was their decision?
You may read the final statement here:
Or you can look at it this way:
It took the Patent Office three years to tell us what the WorldWide Scam Network was saying three years ago-
David Schmidt is a fraud.
Lifewave patches are a fraud.
Anyone who buys and/or sells Lifewave patches is promoting a scam.
Nevertheless, thousands of MLM monkeys wasted three years of their life worshipping at the altar of "Dr." David Schmidt (he signed the original patent application as "Dr." David Schmidt - he attempted to defraud the Patent Office right from the start!). These people refused to consider or discuss proper due diligence and chose instead to "believe in" David Schmidt and all of the dim-witted athletes who will wear and endorse Scotch tape and a cotton ball dipped in honey, if there is a bribe attached.
People need to wake up and get with the program. Due diligence is not something you should leave to the patent office. If you don't like what the WWSN has to say, then do your own research; ask questions and get answers.
But don't let snake-oil salesmen and con artists such as David Schmidt steal your money, your life, and your reputation using nothing more than scientific-sounding technobabble and breathless testimonials.
