United States: Sink Or Swim?
If you're one of two people being chased by a shark, you don't have to swim faster than the shark, just faster than the other person. That's the position that many plastics packaging manufacturers find themselves in as they try to navigate a sea of nanotechnology patents while keeping pace with competitors.
What lies beneath the murky waters of nanotechnology patents, and how can a packaging company out-swim even the hungriest of sharks?
