Chubais Says Nanothieves a Big Headache

Abstract:
In a sign the government might be taking nanomania a bit too seriously, Nanotechnology Corporation chief Anatoly Chubais rolled out plans last week for a war on nanothieves — companies who inaccurately use the "nano" prefix to hawk wares ranging from breast implants to concrete.

"We will implement a system of standards to weed out swindlers who use the term 'nano' in the names of their companies and products just to get the attention," Chubais said at a nanotechnology conference.

The iPod Nano, it turns out, has nothing to fear yet, as the proposed standards will only apply to goods produced in Russia.

State Duma Speaker Boris Gryzlov said at the same event that the parliament would adopt laws setting technical regulations determining which companies would be entitled to use the term in their name or those of their products.

"No nano-scent and nano-concrete, if they don't use real nanotechnology," Gryzlov said.
