Patent office struggles to stay ahead of nanotech industry

Abstract:
As the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office prepares to hold a second nanotechnology outreach meeting today, the agency is still struggling to get ahead of this new and dynamic industry. The agency has come under some scrutiny in the past few years for how it has handled nanotech patent applications. Some observers say, despite its efforts to educate its examiners about nanotechnology, the agency still faces structural impediments that make it difficult to adequately examine patents being filed by nanotechnology researchers and companies.
