 A closed source encryption algorithm is worth pretty much nothing, because there's no way to evaluate how strong it is. So there's no way we can answer this question without seeing the code, which obviously you can't share because it would invalidate a patent application if it were in the public domain. An encryption algorithm with no linkage between blocks is relatively weak, because an attacker can take blocks in isolation and generate parts of the key, particularly if he knows what some of the content is. If your key is long enough then it becomes a one-time pad which is unbreakable, but you've just deferred the problem to how to exchange keys securely. If your algorithm is weaker than DES then I doubt it's worth anything. However, having your name on a patent could give you some industry kudos and make it easier to get a good job or consultancy work.
