    NEN hires people to scan the literature for possible violators? Then NEN
goes to all labs that publish work in which tyramide amplification is used to
be sure the product was purchased from them? Then what? Lawsuit? Jail? The
method is published (J. Histochem. Cytochem) and all reagents are available to
the general public.
