In its report on nanotech patent applications ETC found that the world's largest transnationals, leading academic labs and nanotech start-ups are all racing to win monopoly control of tiny tech's colossal market.
Although industry analysts assert that nanotechnology is in its infancy, what ETC calls "patent thickets" are being claimed on fundamental nano-scale materials, tools and processes. Such patents are already creating thorny barriers for other would-be innovators.
