The in-depth insurance of those issues in one resource units this paintings except others on the interface of legislations and nanoscience.
Accessible to these with no particular education in both nanotechnology or law...

That presumption can be attacked in a number of different ways. indb 10 2/21/08 1:18:56 PM Protection 11 office reconsider its determination. Perhaps more commonly, the validity of a patent may be attacked in a legal proceeding in court.

But it is true that Edison rarely commercialized the products described in any of his 1093 patents and that he engaged in behavior that is included in the broadest definitions of a patent troll.
This replica might represent a spectacular feat of engineering to reproduce the structure so exactly at a smaller scale. But if the only challenge in making it was scaling down something that was already known, it does not represent a patentable invention. Now contrast this circumstance with development of the nanocar described at the beginning of this section. The nanocar is hardly a replica of a macroscopic-scale car—it does not function in anything like the manner of a conventional automobile and has a significantly different structure.
