NASA’s InSight Mars Lander
Posted in / Intellectual Property / - on November 26, 2018
We are proud to announce that NASA’s InSight Mars Lander contains a seismometer made by our client, Kinemetrics, Inc. We have obtained patents for Kinemetrics for their cutting edge seismometer in the United States and in countries throughout the world. For example, United States Patent No. 6,776,042.
If you are curious, the patent is effective in outer space, see https://codes.findlaw.com/…/title-35-p…/35-usc-sect-105.html. Though, there would be a personal jurisdiction problem if Martians were to infringe the patent on their home planet.
