Does everyone know that is Al Hastbacka (Sanders Design),
who has already gotten flack for making comments about the Objet? Al may be
correct about potential patent conflicts, but he is also involved in making
and selling machines and might view the Objet as competition.

In analyzing our RP Patent library, it appears that patenting the OBJET RP
System will be quite a challenge.

3D Systems extensive coverage in the area of UV curable photocurable based
systems can present a significant block to patenting the OBJET technology.
