Nanotechnology Patents Surge As Companies Vie to Stake Claim

Abstract:
The new-frontier buzz around nanotechnology -- the effort to develop infinitesimally small structures into futuristic products -- has companies, universities and investors hustling for patents, the key to markets that the government estimates at $1 trillion by 2015. But the intensifying race to file patent applications has sparked concern that a proliferation of patents, especially broadly defined ones, could hobble innovation and produce a thicket of conflicting legal claims.
