Several Europeans in 19th Century read Vedas and tried to find what it quotes. They Published books and patented them. But all of made very big mistakes in writing the meaning. For example Manuka, Max muller quotes as Frog. But actually it quotes about a herbal Brahmna manduka parni (In Tamil Vallarai). Similarly we can find hundreds of misquotes about Vedas.
Similarly Rig Veda I.115 which quotes about Sun God one Samel D.Atkins, in Journal of American Oriental Society Vol 58, year 1938 mentions about a sentence "Bhadraya Bhadram" and confused with the meaning. But actual meaning that sun rays clots the blood (that increases strength of Hemoglobin) when passed through copper.
Is this patent is valid? Is all the patent on Vedas written by European are allowed and are we banned from using the texts?

I don't know about patents, but assuming it is more than 100 years old, the vedic text is surely out of copyright. As a result it is available for free from Google books: Rig-Veda: text - Google Books
