Fair Use & Royalty Freedom

Since the beginning of popular internet usage, enersearch published many patent free design concepts and practical reports on the www, as a "defensive disclosure" to preserve the public right of use on a royalty free basis. Unpatenting reduces costs of progress and liberates the creative spirit to freely innovate more productively. If linked content of this website is found to infringe on a registered invention, please report this with relevant documentation references. Reasonable attempts will be made to verify which is indeed the "prior art", as compared with dates of public domain research and publications. I do not encourage infringements on patents and advise users of my website to exercise due caution in all critical possibilities. Please feel free to write me but bear in mind that i, Bo have to make a living as a struggling worker. While big interests benefit the most from patents, small business persons and struggling inventors may not enjoy difficult patenting mazes. Instead the small inventor can advantageously share intellectual property immediately and enjoy it's use in the public domain.

                           Enersearch History

Enersearch gave up on the "non-profit" business path in 2008. (All assets were purely intellectual and "inured" to the public domain as required by non-profit law).  Enersearch was a non profit corporation founded in 1980 to promote harmonious integration of art, science and philosophy. All design concepts and technology marked with the enerseach logo were placed in the public domain to benefit the public welfare, as provided by law. Patents were not sought because putting technology directly into the public domain was more likely result in the public reception.

Furthermore While enersearch economized by not having to pay for a domain named virtual server space, the midcoast server has graciously allowed unlimited web space for many years. Prior to the midcoast server, a now defunk server under the name "agate.net" previously hosted some enerseach work at http://www.agate.net/~insearch. Verification of these initial efforts may be accessed, thanks to efforts of the archive.org. (Some files in the Way Back Machine are missing, but some remain intact.) Insearch was a name given to a xeroxed publication distributed through snail mail (by enersearch), to engage in  information exchange, through low cost channels of communication, (before the internet was made public).


Enerseach has researched regenerative annular theory and practice since it's founding in 1980. Many practical spin off projects have been published in humble formats since 1980. Patent Disclosure Documents dated Febuary1979, stamped by the United States Patent & Trademarks Office certify some invention preparation efforts by the author, which later were exercised in the non profit mode. Research and low- budget publishing efforts have continued at a small scale since that time. Operating expenses were almost nothing, but the mission was consistently carried forward without profit.

Note: These pages are placed in the public domain and are furnished "as is". The author assumes no responsibility for the use or misuse of the concepts in this series. All authorities should be satisfied first, as might be required, by relevant laws, before any building proceeds.

Enersearch was incorporated in 1980 but never materialized financially.  A  synergy of concepts were developed and are reflected in the pages of this series.  The synergy continues as a single handed effort of Bo Atkinson, in Maine, USA.
