Bréveté "B.S.G.D.G." stands for Patent without government guarantee, was in France a legal notice releasing the State from any liability on the proper functioning of effective panted device. This reference was established by the law of 1844 which states that patents are granted "without screening, at the risk of applicants, and without warranty or of reality, novelty or merit of the invention, either fidelity or accuracy of the description. It has disappeared in 1968."
