Of course that can't be helped, because sometimes the laws themselves are poorly written or out of date. The judicial is more subjective than the executive is more subjective than the legislative. By necessity. Because all sorts of real world complexities start flowing into the nice tidy neat(ha) laws that have been written.

Oh, but the evidence is there. There's witness testimony, and while circumstantial, missing footage at exactly the right moment could easily be represented as corroboration of the testimony.

The defense would then have to come up with a narrative that sheds reasonable doubts on that interpretation.

In a court of law, conspicuous absence of evidence tends to get a bit of attention.

That seems to be the pervading problem with nanoscale [X] is that the creation process seems to require an expert with sophisticated instruments manually controlling manipulation tools like lasers to arrange the circuits. It's probably something that could be automated.

Is there any sort of tech in progress that addresses that problem?
