@ All, How and where would you register a device in all first world countries open- source, so that nobody could benefit $ wise without the builder making money. If one wants to avoid patents, if one wants to give it to the people free, and yet make $ instead of the corps and companies and or benefit from liscences, How does one do this in the open source world? Who do you register with?  What protection does open-source give the inventor? I thank you in advance for any support and answers.

If you publish it openly, it establishes the work as prior art, so it is difficult for someone to get a patent on it afterwards.  The trick is to publish it in a place that is likely to stick around.  Prior art from 10 or more years ago is pretty hard to find.  And not because of "suppression."  It's just simply that webpages tend to die off. So a printed publication is best, because books are forever, unlike websites.

You can also use a form of the GNU license to try to prevent people from incorporating part of the work and trying to make that proprietary.  The GNU license is more applicable to software, but if you are clever, you may be able to modify it a bit so it works for you.
