If Maurizio Porcelli of Bergamo, Italy gets his way, he'll soon the owner of a US patent for a "Non-Infringement Composition." What a great idea! I presume that this composition causes non-infringement wherever it is spread. This could really simplify life for people struggling with patent clearance assessments and pesky infringement suits. And it could reduce the need for creative judges to find new ways to reduce the scope of patents. Let's just use massive amounts of Maurizio's Non-Infringement Composition to grease the wheels of patent-free progress.
One question remains: can we use this composition royalty-free?
