It is you that are ignoring the meaning of the verb "to found". The foundation is the first act of a company.
Again let me ask: Do you have founding documents from them? Where are you getting your information?
The first announcements and declarations from IH were very clear on the fact that IH was founded to acquire and manage the Ecat.
Not the first declarations I heard. Can you point us to these announcements and declarations that say they were founded to acquire and manage the Ecat, and they had no interest in other cold fusion results, and no plans to invest in them? That is not what they told me. They seemed to know a lot about these other experiments, and they seemed interested in investing in them.
Perhaps you are right, and they started with Rossi and only later become interested in the others. Perhaps. I think is more likely the other way around. My impression is that they were interested in cold fusion as a whole, and while investigating it they found Rossi and concentrated on him. I could be wrong about that. I have not seen any founding documents. It seems you have seen such documents. You sure talk like you have. So tell us what you know.
