The Research Disclosure database contains the full text including images of technical disclosures of inventions published as an alternative to the patent system. Regardless of whether the owner decides to patent the invention by the early disclosure he/she is free to exploit the invention in his own country, or possibly abroad as well. The inventions described in the disclosure are included in the state of the art thus preventing them from being legally patented by a later applicant. The published disclosures can be either accredited or anonymous. Each record contains the title, a detailled description and illustrations of the invention, as well as a statement as to whether the invention is disclosed anonymously or by company name. The full text is loaded in ASCII for search. Page images of the complete records including all illustrations can be displayed in TIFF format.
