나노기술

나노기술은 약 1-100 나노미터 크기 수준에서 물질을 조작, 사용하는 과학 기술의 한 분야로 정의됩니다. 오랫동안 이 크기 수준에서 물질은 좀처럼 보이거나 활용될 수 없는 속성을 발현할 수 있다고 생각되어 왔습니다. 나노기술 과학자들은 이러한 독특한 속성을 탐색하여, 새로운 물질, 새로운 공정, 물질과 공정의 새로운 용도를 개발하고 있습니다. 이는 에너지, 전자공학, 화장품, 항공 우주, 자동차, 의학, 군사 등 다양한 기술 부문에서 응용할 수 있습니다. 이러한 중요성을 감안하여, 미국, 일본을 포함한 몇몇 국가들은 나노기술 연구 개발(Nanotechnology Research and Development)에 상당한 자원을 할애해 왔습니다.

나노기술의 강점이라고 생각될 수 있는 이런 것들은 다양한 도전과 기회를 양산하는데, 특히 지식재산권분야에서도 마찬가지입니다. 나노기술 발전은 대규모의 R & D 투자를 필요로 합니다. 이 발전에서 결과하는 지식재산권은 투자회수율의 보장을 위해 적절히 보호되어야 합니다. 지식재산권을 보호하려면, 나노기술을 이해하는 특허변호사의 전문 기술이 필요합니다.

Sughrue Mion의 특허 변호사들은 나노기술 발명 보호에서 축적한 풍부한 경험을 보유하고 있으며, 상이한 학문을 넘나드는 기술적 배경과 고도의 전문지식을 갖고 있어서, 나노기술을 다양한 형태로 보호할 수 있습니다. 그 결과, Sughrue는 나노튜브, 나노소재, 리포솜, 나노나선형, 약물 전달 기전, DNA/단백질 칩, 마이크로어레이, 미세유체역학 등의 다양한 나노기술에서 다수의 특허를 획득했습니다. 또한 Sughrue 변호사들은 상담 서비스를 제공하고, 나노기술과 관련된 거의 모든 분야에서 법적 의견을 제공해오고 있습니다.

나노기술 특허 프랙티스 그룹의 변호사들은 의뢰인들이 나노기술 발명을 보호하도록 돕는 데 필요한 기술적 전문지식을 보유하고 있습니다.
