                 long-established Philadelphia intellectual property law
                 firm, we read R. D. King et al.'s Report about robotic
                 inventors (``The automation of science,'' 3 April, p.
                 85 \cite{King:2009:Science} ) with interest. We wonder
                 whether the products invented by robots will ultimately
                 become free to the public without the possibility for
                 patent protection.
