    I remember watching a clip from syfy b-movie where a dude is in awe in front of a small fusion power plant and vaguely remember him talking about a war caused by USA gatekeeping other countries from this unlimited clean source of energy by abusing copyright or something like that.

      Copyright only works by mutual consent of the countries enforcing it. Much like nuclear secrets in the 50’s, once the knowledge of the possible is there, no amount of geo-politicking will keep it limited to a single country.

        Let’s be honest, much like how any nuclear advancement is highly controlled and any country that dabbles in it is drowned in sanctions, USA would certainly bully any country that would replicate it without their consent and “friendly countries” would have a huge discount in licensing costs.

          They can certainly slow down the proliferation this way, a lot. They can’t gatekeep it forever from a determined third party though.
