I have around 200 patents and patent applications in my “Q” folder. I have read all of them, some in skim mode and a lot in drill down to detail fashion.
The patent landscape is complex and paves the way for future litigation.
I had an interview with Element Six ~ 2009-10. I had read their patent portfolio and told them that I thought there was a lot of mileage in the quantum applications of CVD diamond.
They would not let me see their growth facility, they said it was too risky to let somone “skilled in the art” see their kit.
Despite this I did not get the job…
