There is someone selling the same type product already on Amazon and they are claiming that there is a patent pending.

There are people, who slipped my findings (in plasma

There are people, who slipped my findings (in plasma research) in their work and got benefited from it publishing fundamental work (group A). Other groups (group B), who I have also talked and said that my physics was important in their Government funded models, included major finding of my work in their numerical works and when I complained, now I see that they are referencing the work of people from group A.Both these groups get money from NASA, NSF, etc., i.e. Governmental Sources. Most of my work was done on my own time, and despite numerous attempts - I never got funded (well, money was going to those thieves) and now the situation is like in my letter to Senate and Congress Committee:https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/letter-sent-us-senators-members-committee-science-kaghashvili-phd-?trk=mp-reader-cardSo, my question is what can I do legally? There are many groups who I talked and all of them thought that they took nothing important from me, as one Professor wrote to me:"My apologies if we omitted your reference — can you send me the citation info? (I saw the hyperlink to linked-in in your message, but I'm looking for the bibliographic citation, something I can put in future papers.) Our model is super-simple — we neglect density fluctuations and background-density variations perpendicular to the background field, as well as all compressive fluctuations and kinetic effects. This may be why we are not including the waves you're describing. I saw that you wrote to Bart and me as well separately, but the same comment about the super-simple model (no density fluctuations or compressions) applies there as well."Both groups knew my work, their work includes my important findings, and I am not sure NASA, NSF (I wrote them several times), or other funding agency will easily confess that they made mistakes form 7-8 years now.All these research was done on my own time, while having a day-job on Gov. project hoping that one of my grants might be awarded since 2007!? I spent many hours of my family time, twice were very close for family of four to be separated because my spouse felt, and I agree with her, that I was spending too much family time on that. But now I know that I never had a chance, people I spoke since 2008-2009 (Univ. Professors, high-ranked NASA scientist, etc.) were taking my major finding and including in the work, and then they were rewarding even more, etc.So, what is that I can do?
