Patents for Nanotechnology and Quantum Technology Inventions

The patenting of nanotechnology inventions is a new branch of patent law, for which the patent offices and courts are only just beginning to develop specific decision-making principles. Many inventions that are based on quantum effects or in which classical physics and quantum physics meet lie outside the framework which case law has established on the basis of conventional technologies. Their inventors are frequently on new territory not only technologically but also with regard to patent law.

With practice-oriented publications and lectures – often jointly with the nanotechnology experts from the patent offices – we are playing an active role in the development of this new field of law.
