Unfortunately, the view you mention in your email is still the commonly held one. That quantum entanglement cannot transmit information is still a sacred cow - its sacredness enshrined by special relativity (SR) which claims that nothing, not even information, can travel faster than light.
This view is totally wrong - and not merely because Steenblik’s or my patent say so. Rather, the physicists have proved this themselves - but only as a side effect from other experiments.
As you will see with my patent, my initial application was rejected because I could “show no evidence for the phenomenon.” That I resubmitted and succeeded was especially because of an excellent patent attorney at Merchant & Gould in Minneapolis - but even he needed evidence to go on! The evidence that I uncovered to clinch it was an article that showed that the orbital angular momentum (OAM) of light was a quantum phenomenon. This article is “Entanglement of the Orbital Angular Momentum States of Photons” by Alois Mair, Alipasha Vaziri, Gregor Weihs & Anton Zeilinger, Nature 412 (19th July 2001) 313-316. Comparing figure 4 with figure 1 there you will see how OAM, transmitted by quantum entanglement, alters the position of reception of the ‘receiver’ detector. The deduced two dimensional pattern is shown adjacent in figure 4.
This proves beyond any shadow of a doubt that information has been transmitted through quantum entanglement. That it might not appear so, given that they used coincidence detectors, is only because these latter were needed to weed out the signal which comprised only 2% of the photons overall. More importantly, it would seem that the researchers themselves have not yet realized the implications of their discovery.
Please accept my apology for pushing this hard science on you, Glenn, but as you are among knowledgeable colleagues you have nothing to fear from me!
