All the money, and lawyers, and scientists, and politicial power in the world,  won't change the fact that Jonathan Aerospace Materials Corporation invented "MicroLattice" before Boeing.  You can't undo history.  We were first and there is nothing that will ever change that.  This is not a patent law issue at all.  It is: trademark infringement, plaigerism, intellectual property theft, corporate espionage, immoral, illegal, wrong, short sighted, small minded, doomed to fail, and much more.
 
Bottom Line.
MicroLattice = Lattice Block Material.
It's exactly the same thing and you can't patent anything that is obvious or already in the public domain.  LBM is both.
